St. Patricks well, and its helical passages.
Like many of my projects, the Shadow Array required us to figure out how to uniquely handle, build, and assemble the logs efficiently and with a level of control to meet my desired outcome. The size of these logs and the scale of the Shadow Array required a very different mindset than is typical with most sculptural commissions.
Im fortunate to have such a great group of people contributing there skills and experience to my project, and to be located where there is such a highly qualified and motivated community to work with.
The shadow array will be in complete less than a year from now. This is one of several video vignettes that will follow the project and provide a bit of background on what is going to be my largest work yet.
Working at a scale this large, Ive navigated a balanced path of honoring a core idea and allowing the necessity of technology and the unknown to play their role.
I have been commissioned to create a new work for the Denver International Airport and it's South Terminal Project. This is a preview of what I will be installing in 2015. The entire sculpture will consist of about 250 Spruce logs (beetle-kill) from Southern Colorado.
A recently completed commission in Seattle, Confluent Boulders, is located at the Maple Leaf Reservoir Park in North Seattle. Its been a wonderful experience working with the City of Seattle, the Public Utilities Department and the Watershed Management folks, as well as with Berger Partnership.
