|Installation view, including the video Born Twice (Yellow), at right.|
Tucked around a corner in the rear of the gallery is a 3-1/2 minute video, Born Twice (Yellow), 2014, which details the evolution of a giant, 100+ carat yellow diamond, from rough stone to immaculately faceted, charted in time-lapse shots taken throughout the cutting process. In many ways, it's a time-based interpretation of what might be going on in Eternally Arriving, which collapses the advent of time. And in the case of this yellow diamond, eternity is an enthralling possibility.
