It’s Fleeting/Lighten Up is a typographic installation designed to reveal a message as it interacts with sunlight. Laser-cut into a sheet of stainless steel bent at a ninety degree angle, the piece presents two phrases, “IT’S FLEETING,” and “LIGHTEN UP.” Laser-cut messages are cut from both planes—one with the message “IT’S FLEETING” and the other with “LIGHTEN UP”. Installed at eye level and flush against the wall, “IT’S FLEETING” is always be visible and “LIGHTEN UP” is revealed as shadow as the sun passes overhead. If the weather/lighting is cooperative, this stranger will share its secret with you.
This installation is still looking for a permanent, outdoor home.
