Rachel Mica Weiss installing her work at the U.S. Embassy Bishkek

The work that is behind me is very much still in progress.
You can see the scaffolding up.
We’ve been working all week to install 36 panels to the ceiling, which will all represent a portion of the Tian-Shan in the southern part of Kyrgystan.
The installation is sort of a homage to the environment that is surrounding the embassy, the landscape which is incredibly beautiful, these unspoiled mountain ranges which I know are so important to the people here.
And so I used that as my jumping off point to use those mountains which represent this landscape into the U.S. Embassy and bring the Kyrgys countryside into the U.S. Embassy.
