This finely poised piece, whose densely formed base carefully
counterweights its slanting top, suggests the banding of "gneiss" (pronounced "nice") -
high-grade, folded and refolded metamorphic rock. Gneiss is used as a building stone and
Gneiss presents a structured edifice - a piece of subtly balance tension. Constructed from
over 500 identical pieces, the most dramatic visual aspects of this sculpture are probably
the Moire patterns that come into view whenever the sculpture is between the viewer and a
light source, whether reflected or direct.
