The funny thing about being on Sound Transit's artist roster is you apply to do one thing, the proposal is accepted, and then they ask you to do something else entirely. It's OK, I get it. It's a big project, there are endless variables, and in the end what I proposed wasn't feasible. Whatever! I was grateful to be asked to contribute and the challenge of having to conceive and execute a project within strict temporal, spatial, and conceptual limits was just what I needed to shake me out of my recent torpor. Since my assignment was to decorate a 4-foot plywood star on behalf of the Cal Anderson Park Alliance, I decided to make something at and about the park. I took photos from particular spots night and day and then interpolated them. It's an idea I've had kicking around for a while and though this was an acceptable first attempt I'd still like to push it further. OK?
