3D : 2009

Mica discs represent a c.d. or vintage record. ‘Heart on a Spring’ represents what I think most songs are inspired by…love, whether it be lost or discovered. The blueprints represent the makings of a song…the need for a design, template or layout of -- for example -- the lyrics, meter, rhythm or baseline. The detail on the inside left side of the box reminds me of what I imagine to be a musical scale. The detail on the bottom of the box, just below the hanging heart, is (and I’m guessing here) a drawing of a turbine. I image a turbine as the engine behind the movement of a song, keeping the pace and rhythm of the tune. N-S-E-W…I find representative of the many directions a single song can follow in the span of just a few minutes.
