Keep Off the Grass! Planar Landscape Phenomena, an undulating segment of lawn “floating” in midair. The concept was to suspend 1000 sf of sod approximately halfway between the floor and ceiling of the 24-foot high display space.  On the underside of the piece, 20-foot long, 0.75-inch diameter steel pipes oriented transversely connected via clamps to 50-foot long, 12-inch deep curvilinear knife beams which ran longitudinally.  The beams, constructed and shaped out of plywood segments, held the oscillatory look of the work.  As a whole the work was suspended from the ceiling with intermittent cables which ran at various angles from the ceiling to several of the supporting pipe.
