Minnesota in ¾ Time, 1997

Glass, steel, photographs

4 ft. h X 14 ft. l

Location: Inside Tate Physics Lab vestibule, east bank campus

I chose to place the art in the windows at the main entrance of the building because it marks the moment of transition between the interior world of academic physics and the exterior world. This piece references the location of the Physics Building in Minnesota, at the University, on the Mall. The photographs of the trees were shot on the Mall. I hope that looking through the images of the trees on the glass to the trees on the mall visible through the windows forms an apt metaphor for the connection between what goes on within the Tate Lab and the world outside.
