Fluorescent Sunrise, 2017Epoxy resin, pigment, and steel6.75 × 13.5 × .25 feet

Pairing the semicircular form of a setting sun with the sensation of looking at an LCD screen, Freelander explores the contemporary sublime. The sun’s orange-pink color gradient echoes the sedimentary accumulation of the earth’s geology, conjuring various time frames—the 8-second digital media attention span, the 24-hour daily cycle, and the eons of the earth’s life—and eliciting questions about the sustainability of contemporary living.
