Burnt into Time, 2014
Wood, Fabric, Photo-sensitive Dye
Brian was inspired to work with the grids created by the walking paths between buildings on the University of Washington Campus. He created obelisk forms from pink wood mixed with fabric that have been bleached by the sun. The obelisks, reaching twelve feet in height, will block light and create moving shadows throughout the day. These shadows unveil the ever-changing surfaces around them, with which the viewer can interact and witness the steady progression of time.
