This is a sculpture I made for Sculpture II, '06 but didn't document till this weekend.
The piece was originally located outside of the Art building at ASU. This object was very out of place along the path, so to some, it became a curiosity. The object of this piece is to invite observation from passersby, and to also keep their attention for at least 6 seconds, double the average time a person will look at a piece of art.
Found objects, lighting. 2006

Jesus paraphernalia found in Coolidge-ish, AZ. 2006.
Didn't keep anything here. Thought it may be in bad taste, or bad luck.
I should go back for that little angel sculpture though.
From an abandoned house Chandler/Gilbert-ish, AZ.
Pinhole created from fishing reel cover found on site, which fit around the lens perfectly. I kept that little wonder, along with a bunch of old drawer knobs, how random.
Bees seem to be a pretty constant variable in my rural explorations. It seems when the humans leave, windows get broken and doors get left open. Bees find abandoned houses great places to set up shop. Birds also love the free rent. I always have to be careful not to piss them off, which usually works since they are pretty focused on just doing what they do. I think since bees are used so much in rural settings for agriculture, the concentration must be higher out there.
Pile of old glass insulators on an abandoned property way west of Phoenix, AZ. 2006.
Pile was about
6' x 25' x 3'. So I took a few. This guy collected everything: insulators, meteors, rocks, minerals, much more to come on this place.
