NY Well Ephemeral installation consists of a 90 pound well built with ninety-nine bricks of wax cast from modeling clay impressions taken on September 2001 of bas-relief lettering around Manhattan.

The samples were collected a couple of weeks before the WTC terrorist attack. The piece was melting along the four weeks the show lasted, being gone by the end of the exhibition.
