“Liquid Relations, Listening Back in Time” conveys themes of personal identity and the connections between the self and others, in particularly family members. The anthropomorphic forms– iron figures or family members of different heights and shapes, arranged concentrically above curved metal and wooden floor pieces- imitate the course of our planets, or Saturn’s rings. The idea of a cosmos built upon harmony and proportions is literalized at the focal point of the work with a small speaker emitting sounds from radio and plasma waves recorded by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft near Saturn's rings. Meteor stones underpin the cosmic connection while prolonging some of the metal curves like dots, alluding to infinity. “Liquid Relations, Listening Back in Time” is a symbol of a cosmic unity encouraging the viewer to see things from other perspectives and within a larger context and timeframe where everything is interconnected.
