DK: What about the palette? I want the thing to live, to go through me and come out the other end. People sometimes think I work with found objects, but that is not the case: each element is created in the studio. A lot of times in the studio, rather than use something found, I will mimic something found. DK: How did you approach the challenge of siting City in the Grass in a public park? My philosophy is that you as the viewer should be allowed to find yourself in the work. Here I took that one step further by allowing the public physically to collaborate in making the piece.
DK: Were you working on this commission at the same time as the pieces for the show at Galerie Lelong? LD: Yeah, and about five other things. Usually I have about seven things going. DK: What are the materials used in the towers? When I visited Cuba, people were living in these magnificent buildings that are falling apart because nobody has the ability to repair them. The salt water is just eating away at these magnificent structures. Each one of these towers is part of those experiments with different materials, which I began working on last September.
DK: Did you sketch City in the Grass first? I made studies for the folks who had to bend the metal and stuff like that, and I had to figure out a gigantic paint-by-numbers for the carpet designs. So I literally had to go and draw all the information, and then we put that into a computer so we could laser cut the design armature.

DK: And then you put sand on top? LD: Exactly. The carpet is a mixture of sand and latex paint. DK: Aside from the kids outside your studio, were there other influences in making City in the Grass? DK: Is this your first foray into figuration as a mature artist? LD: When you say figuration…. DK: It is fairly figurative. No, honestly, there are no rules at this point in my art life. Early on the baggage was that I was too facile, I was using my talent as a crutch.
