Subducted Landscapes

Chevron / Texaco Headquarters, San Ramon, California. 2002

A series of active geological “paintings” were installed in their lobby. Four “paintings”, each depicting a different geological phenomenon, were set into the walls. The artworks consisted of a 6′ wide by 7′ tall panel filled with glass pigments and set in motion with compressed air. A computer slowly alters the air flow causing the landscapes to shift and change. Completed in 2002.
