I call these my guardians. They came to me in a dream.
This series consists of twelve pieces so far. The one pictured here is the only one I have a good photo of. They are currently living in a storage unit with most of my other work and will need to be cleaned and possibly reworked someday when I get a new studio.
These pieces are 7ft. tall, 5 inches deep and 6 inches wide. They are all different. Different colors, different items suspended within them – rope of varying thickness, thread, fabric, wooden planks …
They are meant to be relatable to on a human scale and they are meant to be shown relating to each other. In a gallery or museum presentation, within their grouping they would change position every few days, mimicking the way a community functions.
