Artist: Samuel Geer

Dervish (date n.a)
Mixed media (4’ x 8’ x 8’)

A bicycle wheel spins horizontally at the end of a motor-driven shaft mounted
on a cart. The machien is surrounded by removable walls and floor.
Molten glass is poured over the wheel as it rotates, causing the glass to
splatter and resulting in action-paintings on the walls.
The walls are removed and glass threads - frozen along their path while
spinning on the wheel - remain.
