10 foot, buried & 12 inch diameter
Black Locust, Aluminum, Stain and threaded rod
Technology, Place, Investigation and Nature all meet in Totem. Animal tracks taken from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY were cast in Aluminum using the Lost Wax Process. Bolted to a half round, Black Locust log, they face the setting sun at Saunder's Farm. Buried, Totem stands approximately seven feet high. It measures about twelve inches in diameter. What interested me most in the making was to be in the heart of an urban metropolis and to find clues and details of Life seemingly running counter to that of The City's.
