temporary installation: San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio, TX
29° 26′ 14″ N ~ 98° 28′ 55″ W is a site specific installation for the Great Hall of the San Antonio Museum of Art. The title indicates the latitude and longitude coordinates of the site. Nine twisting bands of heavyweight sailcloth stretch east to west across the width of the Hall. Lit almost exclusively by overhead skylights and windows on the north and south facades, the piece is designed to call attention to the ever-changing color, direction and intensity of daylight.
