In honor of everyone who has navigated through suicide, depression and other brain chemistry challenges themselves or with ones they love.
I intend the sculpture to be a combination of community engagement that encourages sharing, healing and life long conscious awareness.
3D animation of the project
“The Circle Conversation” is a combination of art and community engagement. Meant to encourage sharing, healing and lifelong conscious awareness.
This started as a memorial to my late son and has evolved into a pursuit to honor everyone who has navigated suicide, schizophrenia, depression, PTSD and other brain chemistry challenges either themselves or with the ones they love.
This large 3 piece sculpture is intended for City and State Art Commissions, Health Institutions, University Campuses, and the Private Sector.
You will see three 8’ tall foundry bronze open circles resting upon the ground –conveying cyclic movement.
The circle embodies transformation—energy that cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed. We transform the world by transforming ourself.
Material: foundry bronze metal works well with the environment, is durable and enforces the idea of alchemy [ transformation of matter] which is a combination of tin alloy and copper. Further supporting the concept of the sculpture.
Symbology: the circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. Representing totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness.
Three: represents Mind Body Spirit
Interactivity: via an informative pedestal with a printed information panel that defines the sculpture and invites the viewer to participate further than the immediate experience of public art.
With a background in architecture & design, my knowledge & project management skills will be beneficial in collaborating with project teams, art administrators & landscape architects for my inaugural installation.
As much as I would like to create my exact vision, I am aware certain installation sites may require adaptations.
