Johns Island, South Carolina 2001
Between: A spectacle of time in a non-transcendental state of mind.
The number of stars in the universe, the number of cells in a blue whale, the length of a light beam, the number of cigarettes made to date, the weight of the moon, the number of possible thoughts in a human mind……….
The piece was conceived as a mirror for humanity. The two utopian extremes are what the viewer confronts and inhabit daily. One utopia, the organic, is habitually trivialized by society today and will never become once again a reality. The other utopia, technology, is a human made meshwork for multiple self-fulfilling purposes.
The space between is littered with contrived remnants of both utopias. The tree stumps from the organic; the techspeak definitions from technology.
