River of Caps or Bottle Cap Mandalas      
  Using recycled bottle caps and jar lids, I will work with students, adults, your community, to install a river or mandala of bottle caps. This installation is beautiful and temporary and encourages all who see it to reuse, and recycle.  

“The temporary, site-specific works of art create a transient nature of change.  Each different piece has something different to say, but only lasts a certain amount of time.  What art is defined as is forever changing in today’s society – just like temporary art.  Bryant Holsenbeck’s piece brings variety and change to Wake Tech.  In my opinion Holsenbeck’s work brings something that no painting hanging on a wall for the past 20 years can bring.  Her works bring change, variety and imagination which are qualities every student, not just at Wake Tech, need(s) to experience.”

”The work is able to convey many meanings.  What I found most intriguing was how it reminds me of the human sprawl across our great continent.  The central mandala being an immense city, large in size and great in height.  The smaller mandalas being the cities that arise from wanting to be near the trade and culture of the larger city.  The flowing rivers of caps represent the many ways people can travel from one city to another, only to end up at the same destination. Each of the different styles and colors of caps and lids can be compared to the many different societies and cultures that can be found in every city in America."
