The Invariant Interval sculptures are an exploration of volume without mass
in sculpture, a form that responds to and illustrates the mechanics of gravity,
and the complex relationship between negative and positive space. The overall
shape and contours of the piece are determined by the materials in concert
with gravity. The linear quality of the wire creates a kind of drawing in space,
and the boundaries between form and edges dissolve and materialize depending
on the viewer’s location in relation to the work and on the changing effects of light
throughout the day.
