7' x 6' x 3' Salvaged redwood, steel.

In the Museum of Natural History in NYC there is an eight-foot wide cross section of a 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.
