Y-Axis was a sculptural installation, a forest of columns, occupying an hour glass volume of space centered below the four overhead beams in the Diego Rivera Gallery in San Francisco. A composition of vertically suspended and floor placed structures mimicked stalactites and stalagmites. Materials included columns composed of lightweight plastic, wood, and wire.
At the center of the structure were 3 monitors playing a looped video entitled, “Arbol del Tule“. The video recreated the experience of circling the widest tree in the world located in Oaxaca, Mexico. The piece was an epistemological critique of a sight-seers marker within the context of a contemporary art gallery.
Brandon Truscott and Andrés Garcia Franco were my collaborators.
