“A Line Describing the Sun features a new two-channel video and sculpture created in the Mojave Desert earlier this year. Begun at the Center for Land Use Interpretation’s artist-in-residence program in Wendover, Utah, Lamson finished the project in a dry lakebed west of Barstow, California. The video and sculpture are both a record of two day-long performances in which the artist follows the sun with a large Fresnel lens mounted on a rolling apparatus. The lens focuses the sun into a 1,600-degree point of light that melts the dry mud, transforming it into a black glassy substance.”

I wish I could go see this in person! If you’re in New York, the work is currently on display at The BOILER – 191 N 14th St W’burg Brklyn.

    The sparkling mud is intense. That’s got to be a pretty powerful lens…
