Chronosynthesis is a single site-specific
public sculpture measuring 24' x 18' x 3', installed at Windward
Community College in Kane'ohe, O'ahu. It is in the form of a crescent
using geometric elements of steel and glass and references a variety
of structures from different cultures whose forms and patterns
I see as relating to the theme I was interested in abstracting:
navigation and orientation through the marking of time and place.
I was intrigued at the
prospect of creating a single architecturally scaled piece at
a site that was both visually dramatic and culturally rich, where
I could create a synthesis of geometric forms through a focused
study of the site, its history and contemporary use.
This sculpture was my
thesis project for my Masters of Fine Arts degee from the University
of Hawaii. You can read
