Nahsah

 

Materials: water, cotton rope, wooden dowel, hollowed bricks, gravity.

 

Kinetic sculpture. The weight of the water absorbed by the thick cotton rope, lifts one brick. Once enough water is evaporated, the brick falls again. This binary, lift-drop system recalls the Diastolic and Systolic duality of a heart beat.

 

Nahsah is part of a larger series of work entitled Tropical Modernism: sculptures exploring materials and systems, reflecting an informal, precarious, and/or poetic disposition.
