Tzolk’in was originally created as a site-specific sculpture for the Bowtie Project, a post-industrial site with multiple histories along the Los Angeles River.
Inspired by the ancient Maya 260-day agricultural calendar, Tzolk’in generates a hypocycloid motion to mark time through movement that is both linear and cyclical. This process opens up opportunities for speculative imaginary futures and simultaneous experiences through time and space.
The markings and patina on the sculpture function as a living archive of its time at the Bowtie, and express the organic nature of steel. In this way the piece evokes life in disparate parts of the city.

Somewhere in Between is a group exhibition consisting of twenty-five LA-based artists of various international origins, ethnicities and cultures. These artists address relevant concepts of transnationalism, cultural identity, appropriation, hybridization, and a sense of place and history. Together, these themes represent the role of artists bridging two or more cultures and the effect of that amalgamation. Through the use of various media, including installation, video, photography, book-making, found objects, organic materials and textiles, among others, these artists further engage with contemporary and historical topics of immigration, diaspora, displacement, current events and popular culture. Co-curated by Michele Cairella Fillmore and Bia Gayotto.
