SELECTED WORK

LATITUDE

27' diameter 6"w

collaboration with Stuart Schechter
material: steel/aluminum
architect: S/L/A/M Collaborative
site: Capital Community College, Hartford, Connecticut
commissioned by State of Connecticut for Capital Community College through the Department of Public Works and the Commission on Culture and Tourism

Latitude encourages new ways of perceiving the world and experiencing location as part of a geographic and temporal continuum.

An unusual timepiece, Latitude is supported on two cross beams in Capital Community College's soaring five-story atrium. The steel ring moves slowly and silently in synch with the earth, completing one rotation every 24 hours. Each day at noon the gold-leafed silhouette of the city of Hartford arrives at the topmost position.

Latitude is also a map, albeit a fanciful one, and provides a gentle geography lesson. The city of Hartford is located at 41˚7' north latitude. Affixed to the ring are filigreed aluminum symbols alluding to locales around the globe that share this latitude. They provide context in the form of a "slice of life" of which Capital Community College is a part.
