Stone 27 invites you on a walk along floating stones above the ground to experience a moment of complete presence. The installation is made up of 27 floating stones each weighing up to 600 pounds or 270 kilograms. The stones form a circular pathway increasing in height up to 20 feet or 6 meters above the ground below. The artist employed industrial materials, and the brains of two structural engineers, so that the installation could stand supported by four minimal steel columns.
After fully envisioning the concept and proving some of the basic components I partnered and worked closely with 2 structural engineers in order to design the details, and complete a full finite element analysis. I then traveled to Reno where I oversaw the fabrication of the steel and bright all other aspects of the project into reality.
This project was created an honorarium for Burning Man 2019. It is currently available as am I to create something unique to your needs or setting. I am dreaming of creating work incorporating waterways, or integrating into architectural settings. I have a range of concepts and designs in mind to suit the possibilities of any project.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
