    13km worth of black and silver threads twisted together were stretched out in a reticulated structure across a large open atrium. The entire form was necessarily dictated by the interior space of the architecture, lines of movement, the movement of the sun, and the placement of the security sensors. The work appeared and disappeared again depending on the existing lighting arrangements and reflected natural light, shifting in an infinite number of variations as time passes. The points of light also twinkle and appear depending on the movements of the viewer. This is a sculpture that consists of phenomena, existing within the movements of the Sun and the visitor. <D.W>
