    Art Showcase: Water Seeks Own Level - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. This piece is somewhat earlier than the other pieces. It is called Water Seeks It’s Own Level and that is often a phrase used in a disparaging way for people congregating with other people who negatively influence them. And at the time that I made this piece, I was very interested in that factor. And I had also been looking at, when a pond or a pool is nestled in between some hills, how that surface is relatively flat and the hills expand out beyond it. I wanted to build hills out of wire by making the size of these squares increasingly big so they would puff out, so it would have a physical presence out of a flat, sort of a flat, grid-like structure. I hand knotted all the wire. It happened to be during a time in my life when I had more time than money, and I spent a lot of time hand knotting this. This is just ordinary baling wire and this material is the kind of fence that they use around gardens and farms to keep animals out.
