Temporal Warmth: Tango Between Air, Land and Sea
Reed, wood, data
36”x38”x32”, 2008

For 18 months, I recorded land, sea and ocean temperature at Herring Cove Beach
(Cape Cod). This somewhat mundane activity of sticking the thermometer into the
sand, water or air, soon became a type of game in which I would try to guess which
of these variables would be the warmest. All three have varying efficiencies in storing
heat, which articulate themselves over time. This daily dance of temperature became
for me the invisible pulse of the place from which to gauge the changes I noticed in
the flora and fauna.
