I love the Arizona desert, and have spent a lot of time in its beauty. As a class project I designed this 12 inch wall clock to represent conservation in Arizona. I chose a section of map in Tonto National Forrest, and meticulously mapped out the topographic lines for their aesthetic beauty and symbolism for this project. The second hand of clock represents the driving force that keeps conservation alive. A 12 gauge shotgun shell, continually spinning, reminds us that 80% of all conservation in the US is paid for by ammunition taxes. The radial gradient that acts as a beautiful backdrop for the clock is actually its hour hand. The radar effect that comes from this reminds us that conservation is all about the land, and revealing its beauty.
