Hilton Head to the Moon

William H. Bennett - Charlottesville, VA
Wood, steel, mirrored plastic, aluminum, copper, stone light - 20’ x 12’ x 12’

William H. Bennett’s interactive machine-like sculpture, Hilton Head to the Moon, seeks to bridge the distance from the earth to the sky, envisioning connections between Hilton Head Island and the larger universe. The work is composed of a building like form with steeple and extends to form a pathway to a moon and single star. Hilton Head to the Moon was inspired by Adam Gopnik’s (New Yorker writer) book of essays titled Paris to the Moon (2001) which references an anonymous 19th Century engraving illustrating a train leaving a station in Paris and rising on tracks heading to the moon.
