'Buddhalaiti's Dream: The Transference'

Lost Boy

Spirit Ship

Spectral Shift II


Materials = Stainless Steel, Dichroic Glass

This proposal calls for the placement of approximately 6-8  sculptural objects, in a variety of sizes, shapes, and structures, fabricated from stainless steel, arranged across a small portion of the ‘fern glade’ to the left of the trail heading in the direction of ‘the stone wall area’.

These objects will range from 3-4 feet in length, to eight feet tall. Some will be close enough to the trail to be touched, while others will be placed at a viewable distance, perhaps 60 feet from the trail. Several will be suspended from appropriate tree branches, just high enough to be out of reach.

One suspended piece will be made from multiple arcs of stainless steel, intermixed with colored dichroic glass discs. This will turn in the breeze, casting colored light reflections all over the surrounding environment.

The intention is to create a strange otherworldly environment of alien-esque artifacts. Fragments of some kind of alien intelligence or presence, set in an otherwise, perfectly quiet, natural environment.
