Walsh Works is an example of Brenner's method of working: taking in the space, reacting to what is there, and putting forth what is relevant to that environment. In this case, the piece was to be over the stairwell, and about Walsh Construction. The concept was to construct an installation which had the feeling of being a mobile, and utilizing some of the materials and tools of the trade. Many of these materials were gathered from Walsh construction's boneyard in Chicago, IL. The brick patterned false ceiling with illuminated mortar joints created a neutral backdrop for the hanging elements in a uniformed 'wash of light.'
