In Between, 2017
The exterior of In Between has an industrial presence, and a more sacred, natural one inside. The form is built from large propane tanks that are sliced and welded into a clover-leaf shaped chamber. The exterior’s mass, rust and industrial aesthetic are intended to be somewhat uninviting, but when the viewer enters, the painted curved walls lead the viewer’s eye upwards toward an oculus in its domed roof. The interior architecture highlights time and place by allowing the sun to mark the interior walls with a moving projection of light that shifts from circle to ellipse until it disappears near the end of the day. The title “In Between” refers to the relationship between the external industrial structure, forged using natural resources and an internal experience with nature designed for reflection.
