location: The Commons, Ithaca NY
Invitational for Art in the heart of the city (2007-current)
ultimately, i would like to make many fluttering Moth-A-Ra's, install them in a garden/forest environment and reflect video onto them.
"Tower of Souls" steel, paint
installation view on The Commons in Ithaca, NY.
this site specific piece was originally designed to be volumetric, however, due to time constraints it remained as a somewhat kinetic sound device if tugged on gently. Someone must have climbed this, which caused it to bend 90 degrees where the square stock support was welded , and thusly, it is now in my sculpture garden.
"Tower of Souls" steel, unfinished
oxy-acetylene cut, ground, filed and mig welded (mostly 10ga.)
Knowing this was going into a public space at ground level, I realized i had to add color for safety reasons. These simple 2D beings, if left shiny, can evoke a camellian like illusion, a shape shifter quality that can suddenly surprise one by their prescence...
