Year: 2019 | Materials: warehouse, 10,000 pinholes, sunlight, heat, weather | Dimensions: 92x35x18’ (LWH) | Exhibition: Tinworks Art | Location: Bozeman, Montana

Inspired by the Renaissance practice of installing solar observatories within cathedrals, I drilled 10,000 small holes into the roof of an abandoned warehouse. Through each hole, an image of the sun is projected. As the sun arcs across the sky, this constellation of images moves through the space – in the rafters, across the walls, along the floor, and over visitors. Their transit calls attention to a time marked not by numbers but an experience of place.
