Sand, plaster and acrylic paint
5 x 14 x 14 ft
Analemmatic sundial built collaboratively with Guy Ben-Ari. This project was commissioned by the city of Bat Yam, Israel during the summer of 2011.
Artists and collaborators Guy Ben-Ari and Leah Wolff were invited to participate in Ocean Breeze, a public sculpture project in the city of Bat Yam, Israel. The resulting collaborative piece titled “Time Loops” referred to the ideas of Gilles Deleuze about repetition as part of the human experience, and the cyclical nature of our daily habits. The installation was meant to be used by the public as a human sundial, when the viewer standing in the center of the installation could tell the time according to the location of their shadow on the ground. The show was be open to the public from August through September 2011.
