A sense of place is essential to my work. Aeolian Conduit was created
specifically for this landscape; it was inspired by the natural and sculptural
beauty of Forest Hills Cemetery. The shape was suggested by the traditional
obelisk memorials found at Forest Hills. Here I have emphasized its archetypal
meaning as a powerful form which unites earth and sky, life and death.
Aeolian Conduit is also a wind harp, and its sound is utterly dependent
upon natural forces. This piece was made to be placed in a cemetery, a
place of passage and a place wherein nature's rhythms are all-powerful.
