thinking about shelter in the form of something poetic I've included this video on you tube. I especially like the conversations about how this piece comments on or creates a dialog between the local fishermen of the area. For the local fisher catchers of this area, a net serves as a way to make a living. By a simple object that is weaved together for the sole intention of catching perch or whatever is down there, a family can survive. So the net becomes the shelter for those who own one, a shelter for life. So through this sculpture, possibly indirectly there is a homage paid to the locals of the land.

  1. Love the net. So cool. Your ideas about shelter are also interesting. I am a fan of the psychological shelters we find in this world. They have less to do with the places we are physically and more to do with places we are mentally. How do we put people places with our work? When you figure that out, let me know.
