Rays is a form I continue to develop. It is meant to be different sizes and variations. I am the most interested in making a flatter wall mounted version out of mirrored stainless steel or mirror, with 3 to 5 times as many rays/segments than pictured here. Similar in form to Jay Defeo’s Rose. Ideally 25’ x 35’ x 3’ or larger. An explosive mirrored wall that will dance with reflected movement.
This pictured version was made for my Meow Wolf installation. It is painted now and hangs upside-down from the ceiling of a dark room that is devoted to sound and contemplation. There is 3+ hours of audio that includes the work of over 40 musicians and seniors in end-of-life care from the artist group Life Songs. Listen to our collaboration here. Santa Fe, New Mexico. 2016
