Untitled (Suspended beam)
This sculpture consists of a steel gantry from Socrates and a salvaged pine beam. The gantry has been employed as a tool in the production of countless artworks in the park’s studio over the years. The beam bares cut holes, evidencing the mortise and tenon joint system that once secured the piece into a larger architectural structure. The way these materials have been joined to make the sculpture allow them to be reinterpreted and still bare their original intent.
