This installation is composed of several smaller ‘mini-installations’, each featuring some aspect of Houston. Viewers have a limited amount of time to look around the installation but are free to take photos.

Below are a few conceptual sketches of the mini-installations:

The installation above is based around the idea of what happens 'beyond the hedges.'

Partitions divide up the space in this installation, and a single clothespin dangles in each compartment. Air circulates by moving through the side openings and swings the clothespins back and forth. One of the clothespins holds a scented dryer sheet that 'filters' the incoming air, working as a dysfunctional air filtration system.
