2.C is about seeing in a different way; more depth, physical mass, spirit and space. Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change. Thousands of years ago indigenous people called this ‘looking through the fire’, not just seeing the surface, but feeling the dynamics beneath. This sculpture incorporates a straight and curved line in front of a sphere representing Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity and how light and time bend. The third line takes the shape of a spinal cord symbolic of our humanity. This sculpture moves and changes as do our own perspectives throughout our lifetime. 2.C is a compelling equation impregnated with questions to be answered.
