Stele XCIX

Buddha’s Seat Series

Carved Concrete, Fiber Optics, Electronics
Stainless Steel Base
70" x 12" x 10"

Cast with black sand, this sculpture is dark gray in color and has an organic texture carved into its surface that resembles an ancient stone that eroded beneath a covering of vines. The fiber optic light that forms on the surface changes color, shape and rhythm with variations on the geometric shapes used throughout the Buddha’s Seat Series.

The animation here shows only a few seconds of the light program that takes days to repeat. See Statement-Sculpture for more information about these works.
