Aerial Sculpture, 1986-1987

I listened to Keith Jarret’s Koln Concert, exclusively, at least once each day, for the year that I worked on this piece. Making the piece was a meditation, on the music, form, and light. A transposition of what I hear into what I see.

Over one thousand hand cut and polished plexiglas acrylic shards, all angles are 30, 60, or 90 degrees.

The piece uses the optical play of transparence, translucence, and reflection to appear to move and transform as the viewer moves around it; the piece is a spatial analog for the improvised piano solo Koln Concert.
