I’ve always been fascinated with symbols and the sacred meaning of things. The inspiration for this installation “The Mines Eye”, is based on the concept of a Kaleidoscope. The angles of these mirrors within the scope allow the viewer to see the tumbling colored glass rise and fall into endless shapes of newness and beauty. The perfect representation of life itself.
My goal, to create a Large out door interactive Kaleidoscope. Unconventional and non- traditional of course. This Kaleidoscope is constructed with reusable bicycle parts. Frames, rims, handle bars and more, much more. However, the actual colored glass that is traditionally encased within the tube exist externally for this project and attached to the spokes of bicycle rims.
This interactive installation was created in collaboration with the Urban Collaborative Project the San Diego Foundation Creative Catalyst Grant, with students associated with the ARTS, A Reason to Survive. The project titled The Mines Eye will be installed in South east San Diego

[ 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.
