Project Description

Disintegration

I created this piece in memory of my grandmother Francis Orlando… my father’s mother. She was diagnosed with and suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. I remember her slowly deteriorating over time until she lost all control of her muscles and bodily functions. She died when I was very young. It was purchased in 2005 by Charles Olsen and sits in his private collection.
