An exploration into the experience and visualization of the shapes of time. During the project, we set out for the Superstition Mountains in Arizona and set up the staff the night before beginning to trace the sun's shadows around dawn. The sun's shadows were marked with with the bright green mason's line and after sunset, the moon's shadows were marked with the bright pink line. The entire performance took from dawn on March 20, the Vernal Equinox, to dawn on March 21.
