The Delicate Dance of Gravity and Objects

from 10 Part Installation on the Proper Concepts of Reasoning

pushbroom, chair, clay, gravity and evaporation(time)

A chair balanced for the time being on top of a push broom which is itself precariously standing erect due to a wedge of clay stuck under the hard edge of the broom. This work eventually fell over after the water based clay evaporated enough for this makeshift kickstand to lose enough girth for the broom to teeter over to the ground breaking the composite seat of the chair on impact and rendering gravity visible again.
