Geologically speaking, Orogenesis is the tectonic process which creates mountains.

This sculpture is made from reclaimed shipping pallet wood: oak, cedar, and pine. The circling pattern builds to the peaks, evoking topography and geologic superposition via strata.
It's about 7' long and 4' tall.


The structure was built modularly; it is designed to break down into three parts for transport and reassembly. The two halves push together like tectonic plates. 


It is set on wheels, allowing it to move freely around the gallery. It is a moving mountain, a transforming landscape.

And once the show was over, this is what it looks like in my car.
