The upside-down grain bin appears to be spinning energetically, while the culmination of sculpted ‘paper’ steadies, and holds the piece upright. These sculpted pieces of paper reflect stories and bits of knowledge representing lessons from history.
I recently listened to the unedited Seth Godin interview on On Being. Krista Tippett asked about tribes, and how identity is something that we create and choose, not just for survival but for a connection that flourishes. Godin went on to discuss how tribes or groups can assist in finding others in efforts to be connected. After hearing this, I thought of this piece and I consider these floating pieces of paper as symbols of connectivity. Reflecting on how each piece is connected to the other, I like how it becomes something strong and steadying.
