Description of work

Rain is an 70” wide, 46” deep and approximately 61’ tall translucent sculpture suspended above the main entrance way of The Duke, on 11th avenue. Made from 143 layers of ¼” thick translucent acrylic sheet, this sculpture stretches from approximately level 11 to level 8.

Artist statement

A few seconds of movements is stretched into two hundred images, which will then be stacked to represent a sense of this duration in 3 dimensional form. With this abstraction of time, Rain offers viewers a new perspective to engage with the experience of the everyday. Time is suspended within a series of static moments to symbolize the invisible force of the real that persists beneath our conscious awareness. Rain not only formalizes a sense of duration, but also signifies the invisible efforts that each of us contributes to our current urban landscape.
