​Two large-scaled, sentry-like sculptures stand approximately 15 feet tall and are set upon stacked boxes fitted into welded forms created from metal, plate glass, blown glass and resin. The transparent boxes themselves contain blown glass objects, found objects and cultural artifacts that reflect contemporary Southwestern culture and the history of Arizona. Southern Exposure is artfully based on the columnar atlantes of the ancient civilization of Tula, Mexico.​
