Glitter Ocean

2013 ArtPrize Entry

"Glitter Ocean" is a photographic sequin mosaic comprised of 139,500 sequins -- each individually mounted by hand on a tiny pin. Seen from a distance, the sequins essentially function as "pixels" and form a sparkling underwater scene, which moves and glistens in the wind. Viewing "Glitter Ocean" is an entirely different experience at different times of day -- flowing and swirling with the breeze during the morning and afternoon, and almost "electric" with dazzling sparkle when lit up at night. Visitors are also invited to view and touch the artwork up close, to see first-hand how the imagery is literally "brought to life."
