Ezekiel Chapter One

Chalkboard, Plan, Photographs and Process Video. Installation View. 2005.

A process artwork visualizing the angelic beings described in the Old Testament Book of Ezekiel. Each of 121 four-by-six inch sections of an interlocking pattern of circles and lines are reproduced sequentially on a four-by-six foot chalkboard. After a section is reproduced on the chalkboard it is photographed and erased. Four-by-six-inch prints of the original chalkboard drawings then cover each section of the pattern until the original plan is completely obscured by the new version. A DVD of the entire drawing process runs on an adjacent monitor.
