 240 6in digital prints mounted on circular acrylic  An image of the sky in Shenzhen, SE China, was photographed  every 6 hours: 6am, noon, 6pm and midnight for 60 days (the length of my residency at the Shenzhen Institute of Fine Art in southeast PRC).  The resulting 240 images were each cropped to a circle, mounted on 1/4in plexi-glass and hung 1in off the wall. Each vertical represents one day.

Lunar Drift: Sun and Moon Pointers, 2014

1 PC 1A Lunar Front view 1_9345- FL.jpg
 with Paul DeMarinis  Aluminum, electronics, glass, steel, digital prints, acrylic  Washington State Arts Commission in partnership with Western Washington University for Miller Study Hall, Bellingham, WA.  Two slow-time kinetic sculptures continually track the moon & the sun, whether above or below the horizon, in daylight or night, clear skies or overcast. By observing the relationship between the sun & the moon pointers, the current phase of the Moon can be understood. For ex., when the moon is full, the sun pointer will be pointing directly in the opposite direction of the moon pointer.
