Made from mirrored acrylic, this disco ball landscape will Literally brighten up any room
p.s. mirrors are still hard to photograph
America's first national monument rendered in some of the highest detail possible! I owe a big thanks to the USGS National Unmanned Aircraft Systems Project Office for the data they collected, and then provide free to everyone. Using a method called photogrammetry (which involved using over 800 photos from drones, and triangulating different points in space from the differences in each photo) they created this great data-set for me to play with. There is so much detail you can see the individual basalt columns running up the cliff faces. This sculpture can be yours, and you don't even need to destroy your living room with mashed potatoes.

This is a reflected landscape from Paw Paw West Virginia. It is certainly the largest "Shield" that I have made so far, and easily on of the most complex and detail oriented pieces, but I think It came out pretty great. Maybe a little too trippy... maybe... probably not. measures roughly 30 in x 40 in x 6 in
This is a shield made from the buttes to the south east of Chico CA, They looked volcanic. I saw them while driving by and thought, "hmm, those would make a cool map". Turns out they did.
This one was a doozy! It features the Elk Mountains in Colorado between the towns of Crested Butte and Aspen. It measures 40 in x 32 in x 10 in
Working with a euclidian shape for the base, I took a slice out of the Elk Mountians to focus on the Maroon Bells
Hey folks, I am trying a new concept with the topography. By taking a landscape and reflecting it across 2 axis, I am creating these 'Shields'. Let me know what you think!
