panel from the Arco Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant, lead acid battery, cast iron, electrolytic solution, jumper cables


I acquired a solar panel which was once a component to the world's largest solar power plant that operated between 1983 and 1994 in Carrizo Plains, CA. Using GPS technology, I triangulated a point which shared the same latitude as the former power plant and the same longitude as my studio in Richmond, VA. I traveled to this coordinate to capture one day's worth of sunlight into two cast iron sculptures that I had submerged in an electrolytic solution. By chance, the coordinate intersected in a cotton field in Grifton, NC.
