Snug Harbor is a complex of classical buildings in various stages of ruin and renovation. Directly facing these classical temple facades, across the Kill van Kull waterway, are the oil refineries of Bayonne, NJ. In this work, 24 spears (made of common steel pipe and fencing spear-tips) are clamped onto the columns of one of the decaying temple facades. The phalanx of the spears, in the image of ancient warfare but constructed of industrial material, is directed haphazardly towards the oil refineries seen directly across the water.
