Time Flight was created by artist team Peggy Vanbianchi and Emily Standley Carlisle. They printed the salmon forms using a light-sensitive dye. The eagle forms are embroidered and printed onto a plexiglass layer. They note, “The elements are applied in various combinations of layered relief to create the illusion of depth and transparency."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Department of Transportation and Battle Ground School District.
