DESCRIPTION

Jason Peot deploys light and shadows along with the wood and metal in his sculptures to materialize geographic and demographic data. His works contemplate the immediate space they occupy as well as the broader place to which they refer.

 

For this new site-specific installation, a suspended composition of aluminum and wood is derived from a map of the 25 most populated U.S. cities. The light shining through the structure casts a complex map of shadows.
