Mingling of Awareness
Recent project working with Jamie Willis, selected as a finalist for the The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Creative Health Art Prize.
Healing is changing. A movement between two states of being, through space and time. Change describes a connection between two moments. Mingling of Awareness is a testament to the healing power of human connection. A simple, slightly absurd moment of two feet touching. Sole to sole. A bronze-cast freezing of a moment of change.
Bronze and figurative sculpture have an ability to capture time. It can connect moments from eons ago to right now. It can shrink supercolossal timescales into palpable objects. The material symbolizes resilience, transformation, and longevity.
These cast feet from two different people represent both the profoundness of intimacy and the vulnerability that we experience when we connect with others. It represents the power of touch, and how healing can come from the most unexpected places.
Much like Kurt Vonnegut’s play on words in his novel Cat’s Cradle, where the characters reach the highest form of connectedness through “touching soles’’, this work similarly winks at the possibility of the serious through the absurd. It invites viewers to reflect on the absurdity of life’s interconnected web and the unlikely changes we experience along the way.
