the kitchen mobile was bicycle spokes and red embroidery thread, small arborite counter sample tiles in oak panel and leather and high-gloss black, terracotta and luscious deep red. And tiny wooden clothespins. And best â€“ bouncy rubber eyeballs from the dollar store that i painted black, and used to counterweight the ends of the spokes. Sticking spikes through the center of the rubber irises was a macabre thrill.
the dharmalab was all white balls and bamboo, l.e.d. laser finger lights and discarded computer heat-sinks used as counterweights.
And these things spin in delicate counterbalance. and every time i change one tiny thing, everything shifts and i have to change everything again. it is an endless task, focusing on something that is so very simple – but simple things are multidimentional, and it takes a very long time. for whole blissful moments i completely disappear, and there is nothing but time and space and light.
watch em spin:
