    Cool White or Daylight, 2004

    Stone, dirt, plants, flagpole

    23' x 41' x 43'

    A garden, reminiscent of institutional style industrial park landscaping, calls nature into the service of language, as flowering plants spell "cool white" to accompany the flag above them with the words "or daylight." This piece creates an unusual combination of the linguistic conceptual work of the 1960s with land art and mall culture. The title -- two types of light bulbs that are ideal indoor lighting for painting and viewing natural subjects -- is also a reference to a Dan Flavin essay about how he came to make his signature light works.
