Universal Love II is a very broad way of looking at time.  It covers the current time through the beginning of time using the space-time continuum.  (Herman Minkowski, developed a new scheme for thinking about space and time that emphasized its geometric qualities.  In his famous quotation delivered at a public lecture on relativity, he announced that, “The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength.  They are radical, henceforth, space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.”  I have represented “current” time with a unique human fingerprint nested in earth colors and clouds.  Above this are two bands of Mandela’s, or circles of life.  These sections are the beginning of human existence through the present.  The next two bands are the space-time continuum, using watch parts to represent time.  Beneath the watch parts, written in pencil, are formulas for the space-time continuum.  Look at it closely in good light and you will be able to read it.  Above those bands, deep space with planets and nebulas can be found.  An unknown length of time is represented here.  The two silver “crowns” represent God looking over everything.  The piece is jigsaw cut wood and acrylic paint with a few other objects included.

This piece was in the National Watch and Clock Museum in Pennsylvania as part of an international exhibition about time
