Combining intuitive performance with audio and sculpture, Balance creates a transitional space in which viewers can create their own experience. The weighted feeling of displacement is investigated as equilibrium shifts from side to side with each interaction, inspired by performative movement and unpredictable audio. Elements of personal nurturing and childhood play become a physical manifestation of something you cannot actually see: feelings and mental reactions to (mostly) unacquainted spaces.
