Antarctic Explorer – Darkness to Lightness | 2007, Sculpture

Reed, wood, plastic, data, 4,5’ x 3’ x 2’

A portable data device for the Antarctic Explorer, this piece explores the transition from complete darkness in June to 24 hour sunlight in October. Data translated include weather patterns, temperature variations, barometric pressure, wind data, azimuth of the sun, sunrise in relation to cardinal directions, tides, moon phases, moonrise and sunrise. Using a base of 24 hour, every weave represents one hour.
