Soda cans, bath towel, ink, magnifying glass, string, xerox, light bulb, coal
32 x 14 x 20 cm

Hanging from the central can, two black and white socks frame a young man’s angelic face in a yin and yang embrace, their polarities of colour echoed in the brick of coal and light bulb which anchor the piece at top and bottom. This visual tension is compounded by the optical disc dangling by a bit of crudely tied string from the base of the can. Intensely magnifying a view of a lighting filament to microcosmic proportions, it creates a mystical sense of wonder and meditation.
