Test Site Wallach/Uris: Scaled Solar System [09.19.12 / 9:00am] (2016)
Wood, plexi, silkscreen, ink on vinyl; 947" x 545" x 545 1/2" (site specific installation at Wallach Art Gallery)
An image of Earth is silkscreened on a circle plexi glass in the middle of the room and an image of the Moon on the window of the building across. Their distance and scale are proportional to the actual Earth and its Moon. Their proportional ratio is then used to expand back out to the other planets and the Sun as they were on September 19th, 2012, when my father passed away. The planets and the Sun are placed in the room with angles according to the date and their locations are found on Google Maps, from New York to the states near by.
