Gravity

mixed
each unit 3 x 3 x 3"
Gravity consists of numerous turning wall-mounted units. On one side is a chair, bathtub, or bed, on the other a rock. Some of the units have sinkholes carved completely through the block. It can be gently rotated by hand, the viewer deciding whether the chair/bathtub/bed is up, or the rock.

My ideas relate to ideas of migration, moving to and from those you love, a person's place (the furniture), terra firma (the rock), home, longing, death and greetings.
