The eight sculptural video forms in Hurricane Lost are based on the shapes of hurricane cloud walls, while their spatial layout mimics the circular wind patterns. If one were able to see the installation from a bird's-eye view, the hurricane forms would appear to be slicing through the architecture to form its spiral.

The installation spans the gallery's 1700 sq. ft. floor plan and rises toward the 20 ft. high ceilings. Two helical forms, which together create the 14 ft wide x 13 ft tall spiral eye, spin around visitors who choose to enter.

The soundscape was created in collaboration with Radio Sloan.
