Blue McRight's sculpture project references Italian artist Giorgio Morandi, who was known for his still lifes of ordinary household objects. In "Morandi's Lawn," McRight collected and arranged a new glass, plastic, or metal container each day, covered the pieces with synthetic grass and photo- graphed the growing "lawn." The installation consists of more than 400 objects and addresses issues of consumption, regeneration and the enviornment.
