A solar-powered, outdoor variation of Canoe (2000) exhibited in northern Canada in Dawson City, Yukon, summer 2006.

Manual

1998 - 2006

kinetic installation

Manual is an efficiently futile machine that continuously creates and destroys. It meticulously and gradually deposits dust in a wide spiral formation, then erases it, equally methodically.

Canoe

2000

kinetic installation

A boat and a bridge.
