Outside Coming In Chicago 2014
The passing of the artist Nancy Holt, a pioneer in Land Art who created the Sun Tunnels, inspires my project Outside Coming In. Her work is comprised of four concrete pipes in the desert placed toward the sunrises and sunsets of the solstices. Each tube is oriented so at certain times of day, the sunlight is framed and light shines through.
My homage to Holt uses four flags to frame the sky. The flags are made to reflect light during the fall equinox when the length of day and night is nearly equal. They are constructed with light, flexible and mirror-like fabric to create subtle effects that camouflage the flag within the sky, confusing where the flag ends and sky begins and becoming more defined when activated by the wind.
