Perigee, 2017

Fabricated steel, patina, cast concrete, paper on wood panel, bearing grease.

2' x 12' x 12'

Perigee was exhibited in Precision at The A.D Gallery at the University of North Carolina Pembroke, in October '17.

Perigee uses its own orbit as a unit of measure.  The term perigee describes an object's point in orbit in which it is closest to earth.  Iā€™m very interested in the cyclical nature of things both here on earth - and on a celestial level.  When pushed, the steel ring rotates around the concrete center, creating a 12 ft diameter, 16 in thick line made out of heavy duty bearing grease.
