Chronosynthesis

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 my full thesis paper here.
