RISE

RISE is a work with both sculptural and situational components.  A simulated artificial moon will be built in the desert where it can interact with the stars and moon in the night sky.  A large disk will be elevated by a twenty-foot pole mounted to a wood and steel structure built on the side of the highway.  The disk will serve as a screen for a photographic projection of an image of the full moon.  While the sun sets in the evening the projected image will become visible just before a waning moon begins to rise in the sky to the east.  Once the sky has grown completely dark the artificial moon will appear to hover, suspended over the desert landscape.
