Time Signatures began with Goldstein's fascination with weathervanes, a vernacular architecture element foreign to Israel yet native to the Hudson River Valley. Goldstein is interested in their simple practicality, the stories they tell, kitsch design, and relationship to Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown's canonical architecture text, Learning From Las Vegas (only relatively recently translated into Hebrew). Time Signatures will include a series of large-scale sculptures referencing weathervanes but with a dramatic change from traditional scale and iconography.
