Parkwood Station Art Glass


The glass windscreens are collages from various photos taken by the artist and geological maps. Each includes a timeline in the side panel composed of images that reference a sweep of geological and biological history. There is a marker that indicates the particular windscreen image within the larger context.​

The timeline simply presents the rich diversity of  life on earth and helps tell the story of the rare fossil found in Stanley County, NC; an early multi-cellular life form that lived in shallow waters, surrounding land that later was joined to the eastern edge of North America, and became what is now North Carolina. ​

3. The process of gold formation.

​The northbound platform art glass highlights three periods of plate tectonics that led to the formation of present day North Carolina. A subtle outline of the states with an emphasis on North Carolina, orients the viewer in the unfamiliar shape of each ancient landform.
