What: Sculpture with revolving parts that can be moved by the viewer

How: Open faced casts in furnace or clear crystal. Make maze in clay and cast.
Lazy susan /woodshop technology.

Why: Having free will in our culture is important, the freedom of choice is an idea we assume we have. Chance, social conditioning, nurture, nature and culture all shape and restrict our choices and our free will without most of us really noticing. Philosophers over the centuries claim that our will is not free. The maze represents to me our path of many choices and decisions with their resulting consequences. Cast glass has a misty dream like quality symbolising the conceptual, untouchable realm of thought. The plastic figures in thier vibrant colours
