A large oval, 12' across, with 64 screws around it's edge. Each screw is connected to every other screw with fishing line. The meditative practice of weaving the piece makes dense overlapping patterns that respond to light. I worked with John Warren on this piece, which was commissioned by the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities to be installed in their Sakas Theatre lobby.

 The piece was titled Notice because it is meant to surprise and interest visitors to the Sakas Theatre, and spark some observation. I'm told that many students of the Governor's School like to spend time with the piece too.
