A Sense of Place (Archs and Oculus)












 Dear Friends and Family

A part of the psyche of a sculptor longs for the object created to define a sense of place. Perhaps this is an overlap of the aspirations of the sculptor and the architect. The embrace of the sister arts.

The Ruins of the House of Rage has yielded another fragment that yearns for independent identity. Collaborative mosaic articulation by Louise and myself helped balance this extraction, which went from vertical to horisontal in its presentaation and developed in my mind a feeling of architectural structure. Louis Kahn said architecture begins with a room. Something was missing to complete a the sense of enclosure, and Louise helped me find the mystery rock that did the trick.

The plinth helped, and the equivocations of scale increased when the micro machines snuck up and parked.











If Charles Moore can win the gold prize for whimsey, the rest of us ought be able to play too.

The quest for understanding sacred space encounters humor along the way 

Love to all, BSB
