    Moonshadow II, 1986

    12'6" x 75' x 50'

    I was delighted to construct the piece "Moonshadow II" for Socrates Sculpture Park, to be in at the beginning and select a site where I could envision a landscape sculpture related to the urban backdrop of the city. It was thanks to the generosity of the Athena Foundation and the many workers at the park that I was able to create en ecological system, both physical and visual; that is, make a sculpture which would receive the rain into the upper pool, drain and then spill over to the two reflecting pools which would then drain into the earth. In the same manner, the Socrates Sculpture Park maintains a flow of people in and around and through my sculpture and the others.
