'make haste slowly'

One thing I noticed at the gallery at Coastline Community College were these 3 inch diameter support beams that were sort of in the middle of the space. You can't just move them since they're part of the structure and I wanted to make a piece that would interact with them. Since I've always been drawn to details outside like plants growing out of cracks in the sidewalk, I decided to embrace the cement crack that was already there and create this vine/plant (made of bronze) that is entwining itself up the pipe. It was such a small detail in the gallery that I am unsure as to how many people actually noticed it, but that is partially what I find interesting about it.


  1. This is really poignant and powerful April. Have you read The World Without Us? It calls that to mind for me.

  2. dude, i really like that ape. i wish i could have seen that in person.
