Can You Hear Me Now?

Sculpture
Cement, blue hemp thread, tin cans
250cm x 20cm x 30cm
2016

A brutal intervention upon the simplest of tools for communication – two tin cans and a length of chord pulled taut – is the anchor of this interactive work. Running through a 2m length of solid concrete is a length of string – pulled taut – that connects 2 ordinary tin cans. Instantly recognisable, the device conjures the innocence of youth, the joy of secret, hushed conversations spoken between confidants. The promise of a lifetime of opportunities at one’s feet. But how will the beam of hardened stone effect the whimsy of the length of thread (pulled taut)?
