Openness

Updated: Nov 10, 2018


14 March 2012 Glasnost has become very important to me as the days have turned into months. I had no idea what to call this so the working name was glass/notes (glass for the door knobs, notes for the piano keys. Somehow that name became Glasnost (Openness). This emphasized its spiritual quality. The antique pipette broke when I shipped this piece down to New Orleans for a show. I was heart broken but upon its return, I was able to go on line and find a replacement making its resurrection that much more dear. It was a lesson to learn that in creating these, I will have to think about shipping. Shipping shouldn't "drive" the art but as with trying to engineer these, there are other concerns aside from the purely aesthetic pursuit.
