Earth Helix is a time-based light sculpture and four-sided spiraling column, made of a steel frame with biodegradable seeded-paper skin. Standing twelve feet high, Earth Helix houses internal solar lights that illuminate at night. As the Fall weather causes the skin to deteriorate, more and more light will escape and the landscape is seeded with wildflowers. The materials aim to express a hopefulness in the life cycle through acknowledgement and celebration of the aging process (the deterioration of the surface), learning and enlightenment (solar lights), as well as the hopefulness found in the generation of new life (the seeds that may or may not grow).
