2005

In the Museum of Natural History in NYC there is an eight-foot wide cross section of a giant redwood tree (Sequoia sempervirens), its polished surface engraved with important dates in human history at corresponding growth rings. It is both awesome and troubling to stand before this several thousand-year-old tree: awesome to see epic time in a physical manifestation, troubling to think about the need for this type of graffiti in the first place. My desire in making Triple-Now-Power is to suggest a view of time that is more complex than a progressive chronology.
