The materials for these objects hung around my studio for a long time (maybe a few years?), just waiting to signal what they were to become. They finally let me know, and just after I’d made several objects with the rusted steel and copper the WYNMWA opportunity came along. I created land installations with these objects for the film.
This particular image was such a wonderful surprise in how it reminded me of snapshots I’d taken of the hole leading into a wolf spider’s web a few summers ago. Holes have been a recurring theme in my work for nearly four decades! They just keep coming back. At the WYNMWA panel discussion, a couple of the artists talked about how life is circular and we come around to what has been before. Truth!
