“traces of Euclid”
14’x14’ polyurethane on glass
Each day, for one month I coated a single coat of polyurethane varnish onto level glass panes. Situated in a clearing in a pine forest, the freshly coated varnish accumulated a record of the airborne debris, which fell randomly onto the grid each day. As the month progressed the polyurethane record grew, suspended in its layers, a record of thirty days.
Returned to my studio in Brooklyn, the glass grid hovered level over the floor. With the varnish cured and the process stopped, the accumulated layers seal within them a translucent record of another time and place.
