"Gravity" is constructed from recycled cardboard, and represents my concerns for our democracy over the past 4 years during 2016-2020 and into the present. The construction is intentionally crude and unrefined, exposing screw holes and such which were employed during its creation. The surface design was added by my 5 year old grand-daughter with her innocent and hopeful depictions of butterflies, flowers, and hearts, etc. This piece hangs by a forged steel hook from the ceiling, and may rotate with passing air currents exposing all sides of the head.
