1996, Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA
Fallen oak leaves from the site are painted in bright iridescent colors to catch light. The leaves float freely with other elements in the pond, adding a new rhythm; their configuration shifts according to wind and weather. Color, light, movement and transformation are the elements of this ephemeral piece.
