The mirrored scrim of an historic brick façade invites reflection on the past glory of an abandoned of urban center and its role in present redevelopment. The context changes as the work is installed in different locales. The images shift and fragment with movement of the scrim: the reflection becomes foreground to the surrounding structures. It invites the viewer to reconsider the urban landscape: …how we shape our cities…how they shape us.

In a dizzying turn of events, a three foot diameter ventilation fan punches through the Roof-A-Rama exhibition to offer an exhausting display of fresh air.
Roof-A-Rama Installation Artist: Randolph L. Bradley From 5 September 2007 – 21 November 2007
In an outdoor installation covering 10,000 s.f., the artisan and his crew playfully stack simple geometric shapes - white cubes and cylinders - in juxtaposition to Saint Louis' catenary Arch.
This pastiche integrates a theater of works. Featured sculpture includes Gimmie a Lift, The Factory: An Allegory (aka The Secret of Mondrian), Paint the Town Red, A Sign of the Times, Cut it Out, In Front of the Green Doors, the reprise Behind the Green Doors (a Double Feature), Cargo Cult, Scaffolding (a Temporary Installation), Chopper, and Flower Child.
The breakthrough installation, At the Drive-In: A Double Feature, features on of the artist's first works of welded metal. According to the artist, "I wanted to blur the distinction between us and them, interior and exterior spaces, and artificial and natural light. I envisioned a piece that made art accessible. While six months transpired during the creation of this piece, the installation really ramped up in the end." At the Drive-In: A Double Feature is the natural follow up to the influential signature piece Access: The Seven-Per-Cent Solution.
Building a ramp to bridge spaces public and private, this exhibit integrates sculpture accessible to all. Includes Form, Fit and Function; Deck or Bedecked; Defence is Black; and the influential signature piece Access: The Seven-Per-Cent Solution.
