I will be making lamps and other turned objects from a lathe that looks down on Columbus Circle. Going to be a great summer.
I just saw this online and it feels pretty amazing.

In Gabe’s words: “A time card punch clock with a video person projected into a dome on top. As the viewer punches the time cards, the person gets older based on time punch increments. At the last punch the dome goes dark and is not to be reset until the next day. Viewers virtually erase the youth of the person through the passage of time. With each punch the memory of one’s childhood is further erased from the dome. It is possible that some viewers may never experience the full length of the piece.”
