Overview

This work is installed in the Minqin Desert International Sculpture Park, outside Minqin, Gansu Province, China. Stainless steel, 15 ft. diameter, theme of the desert. It is a window onto the desert. Desert is space and this sculpture is about space. This is an ongoing theme that interests me and influences my work.

Goals

The goal was to respond to the Gobi Desert environment. To create work that embodies and embraces the desert. Sited in a large public sculpture park.

Process

I created the design, it was built in a sculpture factory and assembled on site.
