The photograph of the crystal-like sculpture was taken in San Pedro, CA on a defunct military base, and acts as a futuristic altar meant to channel healing energy to counteract specific atrocities of man. The circular base that the sculpture hovers over is a former machine gun turret that looks out over the Pacific and was meant to defend the major port that is in San Pedro. The sculpture I built with artist Rya Kleinpeter and is based on an seemingly undiscovered geometry - a character from a language that hasn’t been spoken yet- and it measures approximately 7 1/2 feet tall, is constructed of lightweight plastic tubes, and is suspended over the turret using a truss system and wire. I photographed it at 2AM beneath the full moon, using a combination of natural light and studio lights. I wanted the sculpture to be charged from the moonlight (similar to how one charges a crystal) as a means to counteract the violent energy and intentions that the military base was created for.
