NE Dekum and NE Durham, Portland, OR.
Shifting to people power. Dekumstruction is a sculptural artwork, stormwater management system and a bike corral. Twenty halved oil barrel planters are stenciled with the names of depleted oil fields and painted with an iridescent sheen allude to the culture of big oil and mark the spot of two former car parking spaces with a multifunctional sculpture that accommodates ten bicycles. The installation conveys shifting attitudes about consumption, energy, and stormwater management.
