Roundhouse Shines by Olga Koumoundouros is a site-determined artwork using the neglected foundation of a historic train turn-around. For this work, Koumoundouros has constructed a 90+ foot long wooden table that bisects the center of the roundhouse and mirrors the topography of the ground, forming its own undulating horizon line. Rectilinear benches made from salvaged rail yard planks line the table and shade canopies provide relief from the sun while simultaneously acting as demarcations of the twelve stations of the clock. The entire structure including the roundhouse floor and its native debris are coated in a multicolored gradient of acrylic house paint.
