So…

The installation did not go as planned which I feel is best summed up by Alan Greenspan’s testimony to Congress in October 2008.

REP. HENRY WAXMAN: … Do you feel that your ideology pushed you to make decisions that you wish you had not made?

ALAN GREENSPAN: Well, remember that what an ideology is, is a conceptual framework with the way people deal with reality. Everyone has one. You have to — to exist, you need an ideology. The question is whether it is accurate or not.

And what I’m saying to you is, yes, I found a flaw. I don’t know how significant or permanent it is, but I’ve been very distressed by that fact.

REP. HENRY WAXMAN: You found a flaw in the reality…

ALAN GREENSPAN: Flaw in the model that I perceived is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works, so to speak.

This piece was debuted at the OTZ Rooftop Sculpture Show closing party.  The intent is for this piece to be a chandelier so stay tuned for more photos.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this weekend awesome.  Fortunately,the show had such a great turnout that the good people at Outside the Time Zone decided to extend the show to next weekend.  Come out next Friday and Saturday and see what everyone is talking about or to enjoy the magic all over again!  I will update this post once the times are set.  For now, enjoy the photos below or see my facebook album here.

Title: The Mood Organ
Size: 24″ x 12″ x 8″
Media: Fluorescent Tubes, Color Plastic Filters, Plaster, Enamel Paint, Steel, Wire

I started making this piece a few weeks ago while still partially deaf from the Dan Deacon concert at Cake Shop.  Apparently the show knocked some craziness loose in my head and this is the result.  This piece is part painting, part sculpture, and part architecture model.  Intended to be a table lamp, it uses amber  colored plastic tubes to soften the light from the fluorescent tubes.  The name of piece derives itself from a device mentioned in Phillip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In it, the characters have a small tabletop fixture where they can dial in whatever emotion they wish to feel.  This novel was also the basis for the movie Blade Runner.  (Nerd Alert)

Title: Light No. 3
Size: 8′-0″ x 4′-0″ x 4′-0″
Media: Fluorescent Tubes, Colored Borosilicate Glass, Metal Conduit, Concrete, Wire, Paint

This is my first “big” light sculpture and it will be featured in an upcoming show in Williamsburg, stay tuned for details.

Title: Density

I made this sculpture right before I graduated from college, literally.   I’m pretty sure I put my gown on at the studio and walked over to the procession.  To me it kind of resembles a brain, perhaps more of a brain from Tetsuo: The Iron Man, but a brain nonetheless.
