Orthocone with Victrola #1

spray paint on 3/4 inch plywood

12 x 24 inches

Inspiration: Sci-fi novel inspired deep consideration of time / space distortion. I loved mixing the idea of the shell-like bell on the victrola with a marine setting, and I had been exploring ammonites and orthocones for a unit I was putting together for a biology class on the history of life. Post-apocolyptic landscape. Orthocones date back 200 million years ago, minimum, and could grow to be enormous! Victrolas were around before 1910. Traditional Japanese woodblock prints of waves and clouds had some influence on this piece.
