Effects Of The Earth’s Motions

Effects of the Earth's Motions, 2011. Barometers, plastic, paint, gold leaf, paper, thread, pine cone, metal chain.

I have just completed this piece for The Majestic Elk project.

The thinking behind it in relationship to The Elk project is with reference to seeking guidance on The Journey (physical and otherwise). Looking for signs in nature and interpreting symbols in order to predict what lies ahead and to ascertain direction. The wider implication would be asking the questions of ourselves – Do we search faith or fate for guidance and revelation? To what degree do we fear the possibility of storm ahead and how does this alter our actions? Are we looking to understand or control circumstance?
