Littoral Drift

Description
“Littoral Drift” activates the 2-story high lobby of the County of San Diego’s Permit Center. Conceived of as biomorphic chandeliers, the seven suspended sculptures are variations on a theme. Their highly reflective polished stainless steel surfaces enliven the space they occupy with an intricate interplay of light and shadow. Delicately woven upper expanses contrast with darkly attenuated stems, where densely wrapped nodes suggestive of a generative principle protrude and trail off into space. Together, canopy and stem are expressions of light and dark, earth and air, contraction and release, and suggest any number of biological forms, whether aquatic or terrestrial.

Through all of my work, I place a high premium on the quality of materials and craftsmanship, which is not only essential to the integrity of the work; it becomes the seduction that draws a viewer in. The poetry is in the details.
