A Grand Opening For Gravity, 2009

26" x 72" x 13" shadow box; installation dimensions variable

400 feet of pennant flags, 10 RPM motor, false ceiling, painted wood box, fluorescent lighting

Site specific kinetic installation made in collaboration with Mike Fleming. It consisted of a false ceiling out of which over 400 feet of flags dropped through a small hole. The flags slowly formed a large pile on the gallery floor over the period of 4 hours. In close proximity, a wall-mounted unit framed an endlessly scrolling string of flags bathed in an eerie fluorescent light.
