Constructed from bamboo and salvaged lawn mower blades.

This piece is inspired by hard-working people who climb their way up the American Dream.

Notice how the lawn mower blades that form the rungs of the ladder are progressively more jagged and dangerous the higher one climbs. Notice also that the bamboo continues to grow beyond the reach of the top rung. The ladder is set upon found objects to represent the challenges of starting on an uneven playing field.
