Perigee, 2017

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

2' x 12' x 12'

Perigee was exhibited into 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.  I’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.
