“Orchards” is a multi-layer, steel cable weave installation at the Triton Museum of Art. The steel cable is woven and anchored based on the Fibonacci sequence. The Triton Museum installation, “Orchards” was installed in the museums rotunda and is my first multi-layer weave. Strands of dried citrus, found throughout the bay area, hang from the steel cable intersections in increments reflecting the Fibonacci sequence. The end result is cascading wedges of citrus, giving the viewer a journey of the senses through color, light, shadow and smell.
