A large scale site specify installation build from 2,880ft of steel rods stretching, bending and curving 120ft through an historic abandoned Perlite factory in Allentown, PA.
It is made up of 24 steel lines, one for each hour of the day.
Time is not linear even if we try to box it in as such. Compression and rarefaction shift the moments of our day depending on the value which we place on each passing measurement. The form the hours take defines the structure of our lives. Without purpose or direction, without points and position, without definition the geometry of our existence cannot take shape.
Each decade, each year, month, week, day, hour, second, moment we have the choice to decide where our lifelines go.
This piece is a representation of these choices and the finite amount of time that we have to make them.
