Gloria Bornstein explores the confluence of memory, perception and art in her studio and public art practice. Her interest in the archaeology of place drives her art in public places. Using a conceptual approach, she asks, "What narratives give this place its multi-faceted identity? How can I overlay stories of people and place, connecting them to the natural attributes of a place and its functions in the built environment?"

She develops concepts individually and collaboratively with design professionals on diverse civic projects. Her approach is to gather cultural, functional and environmental stories unique to a place, then develops the concept. This aspect of her process allows for great flexibility in her choice of form and materials for artworks that capture the spirit of a place.
