Desire Lines, Bethesda, MD -

Comprised of nine 15-foot triangular columns with heavy textural abstract painting, Desire Lines is permanently installed in the paseo of a new high rise in Bethesda. Maryland. It anchors one end of a trail of pedestrian passageways filled with public art that traverse old town Bethesda. Desire Lines visualizes the countless, layered individual trajectories that move through the paseo of the entities that make up a city — people, families, groups, thoughts, vehicles – all moving rapidly along idiosyncratic individual pathways. The paseo focuses the busy urban flow into a single stream of individuals or small groups, each with a different purpose and destination. The work is the studio's second project for JBG Companies. The first was Pillar of Fire at 14th and S in NW DC.
