"Set Your Future in Motion" is a site-specific artwork for the lobby of Cardozo High School Annex, Queens. The eight steel relief sculptures are shaped like machine gears. Each gear on the main lobby wall contains silhouetted vignettes that depict students engaged in some of the wide-ranging academic programs offered at Cardozo, including math and biomedical science, performing arts, law and ethics, computer science, Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps, and political science. On the adjacent wall, a single large gear centers around a heart and laurel wreath with smaller vignettes showing students enjoying the high school’s rich extra-curricular offerings.
