NEW MOON is an interactive light + shadow sculpture inviting viewers to manipulate the phases of the moon. Exploring the whimsical and alluring nature of our nearest celestial body, the sculpture draws on the universal familiarity of moonlight to all people. NEW MOON was created from approximately 5,500 burnt out incandescent bulbs. NEW MOON was commissioned by Lexington Art League, and installed in Lexington, Kentucky for Luminosity, a light exhibition in January/February 2014.
Sea/See/Saw is a temporary kinetic sculpture constructed from 14,000 used eyeglass lenses. Currently installed on the historic façade of Pera Museum in Istanbul, the sculpture was designed to mirror the dynamic and shimmering surface of the Golden Horn (Bosphorus) below. Introducing chaotic movement to the otherwise static structure, Sea/See/Saw creates pixelated ripples across the face of the building, as drawn by the wind.
