The Will To Impose Order
plexiglas, glass beads, yellow tape




This ten-foot wide installation is directly behind an 18th C. orrery (a model of the solar system) in a window of a decorative Victorian-era building.  I installed colbalt-blue plexiglas and studded it with various sized glass marbles, to resemble a starry sky.  The star field echoes lenses in the building's domed ceiling.   I have delineated three invented constellations that are in the form of flow charts, a contemporary iconography echoing man's will to impose order.
