"Seaweed is limp and motionless on the rocks until propelled from side to side by the external power of the sea. The placement of the wires was intended to recreate this contrast of stillness and motion attached to a solid object. The viewer’s attention is led down into the box through the hole, an invitation to be a part of the object, the centre is both a presence and an absence, to be inside and outside, experiencing positive space and negative."
