Commissioned by the Reading Terminal Market Merchant's Association, Philadelphia, PA, USA, for Swing Into Spring. The Reading Terminal Market is a registered landmark under the protection of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The theme of daisies plucked and discarded in response to the question He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not? provided the inspiration for this fabricated installation designed to accommodate the challenge of filling the Market’s aerial space. This design featured three daisy flowers mounted on slowly moving fans positioned at different heights from the ceiling. Random petals hung down and twirled to give the sensation that they were just plucked and discarded in response to the question He Loves Me He Loves Me Not?
The piece was in constant motion.
