Outside the veteran’s clinic in San Jose, CA, three monumental chevron volumes evolve in a sequence: each similar but slightly different from the next. Text panels perforate the work, breaking the clear division between inside and outside. The word and phrases cut into the work were collected from veterans sharing their exceptional stories of friendship and solidarity and highlighting the enduring fellowships built within the military tradition throughout US history.

Camaraderie is an artist collaboration with Blessing Hancock.
