Molding. The wood was fairly rotten and left quite a few wood chips in the rubber.
Jana helps with the laborious task of removing wood and cleaning up the molds.

Wooden stands to keep the pieces vertical while figuring out the correct positions.
Installed. This image was shot using a waist level viewfinder camera from the 1950’s. Notice the cool light leaks!

Tripod is a primitive archaic structure. Totemic and simplistic. Three identical pieces of cast wood have been stood up and leaned against one another for support. There is a hole in the upper portion of each one, a mouth or an eye to take in, absorb, and watch.
Tree Stump, a thick stump which has broken off of a larger tree but with no visible signs of breakage. That’s one of the things that initially drew me to it. Although it comes from a much larger structure it is complete within itself.
It has many different types of textures ranging from rough knotty burls to areas of extreme delicacy which resemble flowing water or fine hair.
