|Concrete contractor slices Jersey Barrier for Eric Wright's sculpture|
The “Barrier Relic” is constructed from two – very heavy and very strong - Jersey barriers and over two thousand pounds of concrete (it’s not going anywhere!). The skills required for its construction were beyond my use of concrete in my studio work, so contractors were necessary to bring it to life.

Throughout the project, I was thankful for a prior career in commercial art, since the artwork is really for someone else besides myself.
