Predator: Sky Dance
recycled plastics, instamorph, LEDs, fasteners, PVC, cable
72 x 48 x 50 inches

The Predator: Sky Dance piece is part of an ongoing series of life-size animals called Unsustainable Creatures. Each sculpture is illuminated with custom LEDs whose vivid colors glow from within recycled plastic containers and translucent consumer goods. The magic of these works lies in the contrast between their anatomical accuracy and the abstract quality of their materials. The familiar products I repurpose remind viewers of our complicated relationships with waste, petrochemicals, and electricity.

Visually arresting both day and night, this sculpture of cartwheeling hawks functions equally well in the museum or in a private home. Interesting and different from all sides, it lends itself to contemplation. The complexity of its theme (birds of prey engaged in a mating ritual) adds another layer of meaning to its environmental message.
