(completed in 2005)
|Base: 25 in. H x 36 in. W x 36 in. D (64 x 92 x 92 cm)
Sonotube: 12 in. diameter x 62 in. length (30.7 x 159 cm)
Warm white fluorescent light.
|The idea for this piece had been with me for some time. It had different iterations, but the basic concept was always there - a long, horizontal space filled with light and placed on an ordinary support.
The sonotube is a product that I have been attracted to for years. In construction, it’s typically used as a form into which concrete is placed for the building of highway bridges. It’s also used as a form for smaller concrete piers in both commercial and residential construction. At first I wanted to use sawhorses for the base but, given the title, a sawbuck – a tool used for sawing logs – seemed better.
