Community Vibration, 2020, neon, 10’x10’x2’
The interconnectedness of a society is explored in Community Vibration as a reminder that the small affects the large and the large affects the small. There is a balance that is constantly in flux in communities as ideas change and new perspectives emerge. The balance is maintained by thoughts and ideals that unify a group of humans together in the same space. Community Vibrations is a celebration of the links that hold our societal fabric together and keep our lives vibrant.
Smaller huddles of abstract neon swirls are forced together to occupy a larger space but the individual huddles are bound to one another just as groups of people with similar ideas are bound to those with different ideas. A jolt within one huddle causes a shockwave response to echo throughout the entire group of huddles just like a community. Community Vibration invites the local community to directly interact with the abstract neon swirls, which is actually stimulated by observers passing by on the sidewalk.
