“Interruption” is closely related to my series of "Cube" sculptures, incorporating welded steel and aircraft cable. A large open-frame black rectangular shape floats off the surface, suspended in space by two white elements formed of steel rods emerging from square planes. One array projects downward and supports the piece on a low platform. The other projects upward from an intervening void space, also suspended within the black frame by cable tension alone, suggesting a breaking free from boundaries and assumed connections to apparent constraints. The sculpture is protected with a powdercoat finish color – a baked-on industrial coating designed to withstand indoor or outdoor conditions. “Interruption” is three-dimensional and symmetrical. The cable-tensioned components are stationary, though the upper rods have considerable flexibility due to their length and may be affected by the wind, creating a chime effect. The base is engineered for insertion into a sleeve set into the ground.
