Artist Statement

This interactive 3-D mosaic built into stone and wood is meant to be placed in the center of a room full of art. There are two holes through which to spy small circular details from afar.  As part of the Terra Incognita map series, Spyglass transports the viewer into an explorer. It focuses your usually wide range of sight into a very particular and narrow window.
