"Fenceline Artifact" intersects the Denver International Airport landscape with the memory of its recent history. The materials used to establish this 1,000-foot linear gesture include installed fence, fossil rocks from the excavation of the site, native cottonwood trees and historic artifacts. These artifacts are primarily agricultural implements collected and purchased from farmers who were relocated by the building of the airport. Porcelain enamel signs contain maps of the farmsteads, and birdhouses architecturally replicate some of the farmhouses that once existed at the site.
