Interactive art for outdoor festival

Syzygy: The Library Angel is an interactive sculptural artwork that illustrates the role of dualism and interpretation in information. Created for and funded by the Apogaea art festival in Colorado's front range, the piece was built to be burned along with participants' written and drawn contributions. Because of fire restrictions in the front range during the time of the original event, the piece was set up again at a similar event, near the Great Salt Lake in Utah, where it met its fate in fire, on July 15, 2016.
