‘make haste slowly’

April 2, 2010

One thing I noticed at the gallery at Coastline Community College were these 3 inch diameter support beams that were sort of in the middle of the space. You can’t just move them since they’re part of the structure and I wanted to make a piece that would interact with them. Since I’ve always been drawn to details outside like plants growing out of cracks in the sidewalk, I decided to embrace the cement crack that was already there and create this vine/plant (made of bronze) that is entwining itself up the pipe. It was such a small detail in the gallery that I am unsure as to how many people actually noticed it, but that is partially what I find interesting about it.
