These sculptures have fascinated me for some time. The cycling of the rotating light creating moving cast shadows that are abstract and figurative have been described as both meditative and cinematic. They are like flickering films that show an animated series of moments to tell a story that while highly personal are also universal and reflect our shared humanity.
