Seven Summits (installation)

An installation consisting of the peaks of the seven tallest mountains in the Western High Atlas range, set atop a framework of Atlas Cedar– a locally-sourced wood that grows near the mountains. Constructed at 1/1000th scale to the size and location of the mountains, the names have been carved into the wood to identify the stones above. Situated on the roof of the Théâtre Royal, the Atlas Mountains are visible through the seven structures.

Commissioned for the 4th Marrakech Biennale, March-June 2012.
