Having worked on my sculpture Perseus for over a year, I undertook the process of dismantling it. Using a saw, I cut the black hole in half, testing it’s structure against its minimal support. The image of the black hole was destroyed, emphasizing the sculptural abstraction of the form. The transformed weight and balance of the sculpture recalls the density of a black hole hanging in the emptiness of space.
