Event Details

“Emergences” is a series of stone sculpture installations I created in site-specific locations along the shores of the Hudson River. They exist in a continual state of flux, being gradually concealed and revealed with the daily rising and falling of the river tides. They constantly emerge and submerge in and out of view They merge with their surroundings and shift with the ever-changing currents of the waters, the weather, and the seasons. At high tide the sculptures are concealed, covered by the waters, and are revealed at low tide.

It takes six hours for the sculptures to fully emerge into view and six hours to fully submerge out of view. Some of the changes are predictable, others are unexpected; some are gradual and barely perceptible, while others are sudden and dramatic. Over time, the sculptures disappear from view entirely, to eventually become an invisible presence under the waters of the river. Stones are repositories of history. Their layering in my sculptures suggests geological and cultural times. The sculptures evoke the history of the earth and the stages of life. They function as metaphors for the passage of time and the ephemeral nature of existence.
