'In twilight, general outlines of ground objects may be distinguishable, but the horizon is indistinct,' is a 32-foot long staircase that has been truncated at its third step. If extended, the top step would reach the mezzanine of Smack Mellon Studios, for which the piece was made. The staircase is, in homage to the minimalist objects that partly inspired it, constructed of waxed marine fir plywood. Hidden speakers beneath the balustrades play a continuous loop of the crescendoing first bars of Perry Como's Sunrise, Sunset, the title of the exhibition. The project is a collaboration with Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock.
