My experience of art broadens as time goes on. I put this interactive piece together for a group show with the theme “Connections”. It was satisfying to watch visitors become engrossed in the form and texture of the driftwood while arranging and rearranging them in the sand. The piece represents connections for me on a few levels. For one, it connects my work with sand and my work with driftwood. More importantly though, I was able to connect people to the calm and creative way of being that I experience when collecting and working with these materials. I would like to see this piece and other pieces like it in a hospital waiting room or a nursing home.
