Earth Channel, Sky Channel

If something anchors us to the ground but simultaneously opens us to the sky, then that thing can be said to be a channel between realms, even if only a visual allusion to the qualities of a channel in the physical realm.
Part of my intent with art and specifically with Cubed is to create or enhance a sense of ceremony as the series of reverential events that lead to the construction of a piece of art. Each layer of Cubed was hand cut on a table saw, then precision hand drilled over 500 times! Simply to design and execute Cubed was a ceremony in itself.
Translucent, crimson acrlic panels are inlaid into each piece to allow light penetration. To instill a sense of measure and deliberation. A series of pre-arranged frequencies all with specific function. It is astounding, the mystery of it all! Cubed is a tracing of the outline of a part of that mystery.
