biv·ou·ac (from Dictionary.com Unabridged. Random House, Inc. 01 Aug. 2010)

–verb (used without object)
3. to rest or assemble in such an area; encamp.

 

Bivouac is an artwork modeled after a 16' x 16' army tent, made of collaged prints, drawings and paintings on canvas, paper and fabric. The tent will function as a shelter akin to a fort, research outpost, fox hole, and/or command center. Operating within the idea that this shelter is a “home base”, with this artwork I strive to evoke ideas of exploration and navigation as well as concealment and improvised safety.
