Solar III


I recommend viewing the timelapse at 1080p HD.

In April, I flew to Denver, Colorado to restore Edgar Britton's Solar III with a team from Smith Art Conservation, LLC. Originally installed in 1976 at Littleton's Gallup Gardens, the sculpture has deteriorated significantly due to extreme weathering and water trapped throughout the structure. We exposed and removed the many weakened mortar joints and reinforced the crumbling foundation. Once we completed those tasks, a local firm finished the restoration by applying an entirely new marble stucco (that process is not documented by the timelapse).

We luckily finished our work just as it began snowing for 3 days.

The song in this video is My Number by Foals.
