Bodies of water are typically deemed outside of ownership.
As public spaces they serve as rare surviving examples of a commons, a space that is self governed by the surrounding
public. In the winter these northern Maine lakes become populated by small make-shift shacks, temporary structures
for gathering and fishing. The architectural sculpture "Common Ground" translates the intimacy of these winter huts, allowing us to be at once
outside and inside, isolated and together.
