Stash consists of ten hand-made objects whose forms mimic or draw
influence from common outdoor urban elements observed in the Chicago
landscape. These forms include: metal and concrete poles and other
protectors that prevent cars from hitting the corners of buildings,
sand bags, tree trunks, electrical and telephone utility boxes,
flower planters, wooden boxes that cover unfinished electrical ground
fixtures, large rocks that are placed in traffic islands and driveways
as barriers or decorations, and mysterious remnants of once functional
fixtures that remain in situ.
