Concept for a work with time and water, 1985
Projected in 1986, for an exhibition in Paris, and again for ETC., International Seminar of the Art, Warsaw, in 1987, the piece has yet to be realized.
Over the center of a three-inch deep, ten-by-fifteen-foot water basin, a vessel filled with water hangs suspended. Upon its underside, a droplet forms … and falls, creating wavelets that radiate, then slowly fade, upon the surface of the water below, leaving it a perfect mirror once again. In time, another droplet forms … and falls. Ad infinitum.
