 Four fiberglass molds were created before going to Japan. They were used to cast the concrete sculptures during the two week residency. I am applying oil to a mold in this photo.
 Max Lofano, a current student working on his art degree at San Diego State, helped produce the concrete castings and install the work at the various sites throughout the town of Koumi. 
 The sculptures were made hollow inside so that they would be easier to move. Each half of the finished artworks still weighed roughly 100 pounds.
 Max is mixing the concrete while I carefully pack it into a fiberglass mold.

 Max helped me load and unload the sculptures from the work site to the installation sites.

 My wall sculpture, "Suspension 1" and two other Suspension works were also installed inside the museum.
