A Conversation, 2007
fabric and wood stools, 12' x 6' x 2'
A Conversation is an idea which presents itself in a simple, abstract form. The piece is reduced to two “head” forms and two stools. The muslin heads are long simple tube forms. They hang to the level of the stools from seemingly far above. The height of the stools place the individuals in a child-like position. However, the deeper beauty of the piece arises when observing others take part in the conversation.
This piece presents many ideas and questions. This abstraction of the head into a thought or idea leaves the viewer to decide what they will take from the piece. The individuals taking part in the conversation are placed in a very intimate closeness yet are very disconnected. This piece raises many questions about human relationships and forms of communication.
