Stalagmite Formation, July 22, 2005, 2005
Cast reinforced Gypsum
4'4" x 2' dia.; 4'8" x 2' dia.
Stalagmite Formation, July 22, 2005 is a pair of concrete structures that has been extrapolated from the topography of the ground on which they rest, turning depressions in the earth into sculptural forms. The original casts of the ground were dipped repeatedly into wax, slowly building small indentations and elevations into their present size. These full size wax forms were then cast in concrete to create two â€˜stalagmitesâ€™, transforming their originating site into tall outcroppings.
