Autumn, was a temporary installation commissioned by the Sumter County Cultural Commission in South Carolina for their fall festival, Accessibility 2004. In order to read the text describing the landscape of South Carolina in the fall, the viewer had to wind between the tall pines that stand beside the County Library. These lines were composed by Julia Mood Peterkin, for her controversial Pulitzer Prize Winning , 1928 novel, Scarlet Sister Mary.

"The morning air was filled with delicious scents, ripe leaves, fragrant weeds, fresh cotton blossoms and the breath of the dark red earth itself.
Summer was over."
