Created for an Integrative wellness center, this piece is designed to be interactive. Viewers can rotate the entire piece on a ball bearing placed under the base.
This detail demonstrates the texture, revealing how the forms are “drawn” in space.
Piercing all the way through a block of this size is very difficult, but the dramatic result is worth the effort.
The original block weighed 10,500 pounds. Finished, it is around 5,000. It is an interesting feeling to rotate that much weight.
The piece is always sightly different in the landscape, as seen from the main building.
The depth of field of the piece is well shown in this detail.
This piece was created over the winter of 2013-2014, and installed in the spring of 2014. It was a joy, despite the intense winter, to create this piece.
