Weight

Robert Penning's avatar Robert Penning

This sculpture is a functional clock that deals with the relationship between time and forgiveness. It is a man on tiptoes in the form of a kite, about to leave its platform. Drawn on the stretched vellum are images of Michigan rocks that contrast the lightness of the kite with the weight of the past.
