Here’s a shot of Matt Weir working on his monumental new sculpture at Bernheim titled Earth Measure. The square lens in the foreground is 16′ x 16′ to give you some idea of the scale. The element that Matt is working on the in background is a prism that will have several sound collecting dishes cut into the stone to capture and reflect sound. I’ll post more photos as the piece unfolds.
Being on a burn crew is a rare and wonderful experience. On a recent fire at Rice Orchard Ridge at Bernheim I was assigned to the pumper unit and weather. That afforded me the opportunity to sit back and watch the fire unfold. These three pictures were snapped on my iPhone camera as smoke was wafting into the unit from a heading fire. Smoky and beautiful.
