Mixed media installation, 300" x 96" x 168"
This installation extends from a drawing that covers a window in one corner of the room to a drawing on a wall approximately 25 feet away. The drawings are rendered from the winter night sky where each point represents the placement of a star. The holes that are punched through the drawing that covers the window pass through to the exterior of the building and they mimic the vague form of a pine tree. Natural light filters into the room through these holes allowing the tree form to glow with the changing exterior light. In front of this drawing, placed at an angle and reflecting its shape, is a fabricated clear acrylic form. There are small holes in it that correspond to each point in the window drawing. Each of these points are transferred to a corresponding point on the furthest wall. Nearly 300 pieces of brightly colored mason's twine connect the opposing points and span across the room from the holes in the acrylic form to the wall on the other end. The wall drawing is an expansion of the window drawing to approximately 8 x 14 feet.
