Now, 2008

This is quick sculpture I made back in 2008. An oldie but a goodie, so to speak. It was made by cutting the word 'now' out of cardboard in cursive, and then cutting the letters apart and attaching them to hands on three separate clocks. The N is attached to a second hand, the O is attached to an hour hand, and the W is attached to a minute hand, and all the other clock hands are removed. The letters were intended to align once every twelve hours, but the mechanism that controlled the second hand was not reliable.

You are (on) an island (at Bowdoin College).

Mike Fleming just made this beautiful rendering. We're proposing to temporarily install this neon sign on an island in a roundabout on Bowdoin's campus. Let's just hope the real thing will look half as good as this... and that Bowdoin's Campus Planning and Design Committee approves it!
