Great Circle

Installation

8'x12'

"Environments", Vorpal Gallery, SF

1988

In the context of Commercial Gallery, art works are treated as valuable commodity.   Great Circle is a site-specific installation in response to the commercial gallery system.

 

I made a large coin shaped object which represents an image of money, 1 cent Penny coin with sheet rock and gallery's house paint so that the piece totally blend to gallery environment.

Behind the object was a trash bin covered with street trash which I gathered around Vopal Gallery.  I rearranged 10 ceiling lights to aim into spectators eye.
