House II

2.5' glass cube, wax, light fixture, plywood, black paint.

This sculpture is much more complicated that it would seem. If you peer into the 1" square "windows," inside you will see a 1' glass cube filled with water, and within that a 6" glass cube filled with stratified dirt, chalk, carbon, and sand. The wax on the exterior cube created an unplanned hall of mirrors effect. The water cube repeats "infinitely." Shamefully, I've no photos of the interior.

When the piece is taken outside in the sunshine, it glows aqua blue, like arctic snow, quite the opposite of its yellow hues when lit from within.

The lights are interesting. Light interests me. Your other art is too dark for me but then I don't get out much.
