TOPOMORPHOLOGICAL LIGHT INSTALLATION
1998, installation at 214 Lafayette street, NYC
Christmas light strings
ca. 20' x 10' x 40', ca. 7 x 3 x 7m

The light installation, seen from the central vantage point (in the big image on the left side and the image bottom right) is a perfect circle and perpendicular lines, but as soon as one changes the point of observation, the whole "perfect" image disintegrates (all other images), and one can see that the light strings follow the architecture. Because of the length of the photo exposure, the flashing of the installation's individual light segments is not as obvious as in the video. By the way, the word "topomorphological" doesn't really exist, but it seemed appropriate in this case.

UFO ATTRACTION
1996, Easton, PA
Lightbulbs in grass,
Diameter of circle approx. 16 yrds, 15 meters

I was hoping UFOs would see this constantly changing light sculpture and check it out. Maybe they did, and I just was not aware of it.
