From a particular vantage point, this sculpture obstructs the skyline and reclaims the city with a conglomerate of transported extinct mountains. The mountains act as memorials to their own destruction caused by earth removal coal mining -- the environmentally devastating energy production method that provides much of the electricity for New York City.

My goal is to allow viewers to interact with and experience the scope of endangerment, conveying a sense of loss.
