This repeated time-lapse study made in downtown Eau Claire in June, 2014 was created in a 14 hour period from sunrise to sunset. I positioned my camera to create an interval exposure once every 5 minutes. This long photographic survey captured the path of the sun on the sculpture as well as any shadows on the ground, but also human activity such as pedestrians and automobiles. The human activity is just a mere nano second in geologic time. This record of the sun moving through the sky as it has for billions of years can specifically mark this specific human era in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
