Rocks hanging from fishing wire.

The project Soul Etude is essentially a 4' x 4' x 8' steel structure housing mirrors and Lake Superior shaped granite stones which will be suspended from a grid using fishing line. The stones hang passively yet hint of imminent danger due to the contrast between the destructive potential of the stones and the fragility of the surrounding glass. This projected tension is transformed into a calm meditation, a contrast to the frenetic montage of fragmented images, multiple views and the cacophony of sound bites, which the modern world presents to us through the media.
