a place through which the world passes,
for the sustenance of that place and our situated selves,
and for our very sense of being in-place.

a place from which we go to a world which is immediate and present and to hand.

Installed at Bitterlake Reservoir Seattle WA

Salvaged wood platform and corn-based resin upper form.  Thirty feet high, sited September 2009-January 2010.  Resin degrades naturally upon contact with moisture.  Molded in multiple layers (skins) that degrade at different rates, the sculpture unpeels like an onion first in a semi-spherical ring and then in horizontal sheets.
