Eternity (2010) is currently featured in an exhibition at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, Italy, titled O'Clock. Time design, design time. It is on view from October 11, 2011 - January 8, 2012. Check out designboom for images of the exhibition, and Mike Fleming's flickr page for some great shots of the installation.

This is a site-specific installation for a flooded room in the WWII-era Battery Steele on Peaks Island, ME. It was made for the 15th annual Sacred and Profane arts festival, which occupies the abandoned army bunker for one weekend every October. The statement transforms as the word 'on' blinks rhythmically on and off. For the moments that single word remains unilluminated, a new phrase with a different meaning emerges - "You are an island."
Made in collaboration with Mike Fleming, with help from Patrick Bolduc of Beacon Neon, and Nick Riker, Tom Ryan, and Jeff Stockbridge.
