TERRAZZO

Quicktime animation, 97 seconds

Terrazzo spins an open-ended tale of sidewalks, shelter, and shooting for the sky. The Hollywood Walk of Fame, with its terrazzo patterns in black and white and pink, is the grounding of the piece. The animation imagines a 3D shelter built from the pink terrazzo star that takes on a cardboard lining or insulation. The immediate association is of street shelters scrapped together from cardboard. The 3D shelter spins in a sequence of naturally occurring light phenomena in the sky, gains a skylight, sheds its cardboard lining and finally, shoots itself off into the sky. 2008
