Custom vinyl inflated letters, motors, PVC pipe

“G-O-D” is a kinetic sculpture made of three transparent, inflated letters that slowly revolve around themselves. Commenting on spirituality, this piece draws attention to the intangible, ephemeral qualities of a higher power. As the letters spin, they very rarely align to be legibly read, but for a brief moment they come together and the viewer catches a glimpse of its meaning. The cast shadows on the wall reference Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” and the idea that our perception of the divine through sensation of the material world is limited and cannot possibly provide a complete understanding of God.
