More information

Over the past few years, the people of Minnesota, and the city of Minneapolis in particular, have been at the center of the social change that has swept across the country and around the world.

Covid has also cut a tragic path through the state of Minnesota.
Many people did not have the opportunity to properly mourn the passing of a loved one or even to say "Good Bye".

The unresolved pain and sadness of the past few years continues to cause problems as the people of the city and state begin to rebuild their lives and create a new, better future, for everyone.

re(center)ed is intended to be a safe space where guests are encouraged to share their own story as the community starts to collectively heal and rid themselves of grief and negative energy.


re(center)ed is a project with two main parts.

Part one of the project is a 42' long serpentine wall structure.

The undulating design of the wall creates bays of isolation, which allow guests a place for quiet thought and reflection. A ribbon of silver steel, visually, pulls together the hundreds of paper contemplation placards that hang on the walls of the structure. The paper placards, which are made out of water soluble paper, allow guests to record their own individual stories of grief and sorrow.

Part two of the project is a release cauldron.

The contemplation placards, containing the collective and individual grief of the guests and the community, will be removed from the wall and destroyed by water in the cauldron.
The swirling mixture, produced as the water consumes the placards, will release the burden of grief and sorrow as the guests and the community become re(center)ed.
