echo (in memoriam), 2023

Handmade narcissus pseudonarcissus ink, resin, and spotlights

Dimensions variable

In October 2022, trenches were dug 6 inches deep in the shape of the word DROWN to span 4.5 feet tall by 18 feet long. The flowers bloomed around April 15, 2023. This work was called echo. On May 8, 2023 I began to harvest the flowers to create an alcohol ink to preserve the ephemeral work.

 

Utilizing basic PAR (parabolic aluminized reflector lamp) lights, a type of electric lamp that is widely used in commercial, residential, and transportation illumination, I created molds from a 3D printed design and casted lenses that fit their gobo attachment. A gobo is an object placed inside or in front of a light source, and the word can be short for: go-between, go-between-optics, go-before, et al. The beam is 25° and the lightbulb produces a light temperature of 5000K (daylight).
