walking on water, 1994

The Power Plant, Toronto

rope, wire, hooks, glass

net – approx. 16’ x 14’

installation dimensions vary

In this sculpture, the handwoven net visually maps out the surface of water - which is a very ephemeral condition as it is always in flux. For this reason the installation of this piece is also variable - it is never installed the same way as it responds to the space. The hovering shoes reference the suspension of disbelief and a state of vulnerability.
