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.

The Park now recognizes an artist participating in ‘The Socrates Annual’ fellowship and exhibition program each year as the Devra Freelander Artist Fellow. The artist, selected by Socrates’ exhibitions staff, exemplifies Freelander’s artistic values of sustainability, identity, and feminism as well as her independent and adventurous spirit.
