Made for the SVA Visible Futures Lab Artists in Residence program with David Lobser ( in October 2014, Wishbone is a sculptural exploration of the relationship between a single unit and the whole to which it belongs.  The third in a series of single-unit sculptures, its form consists of multiples of a shape which begins with one loop that branches out into two.  The fragile nature of each piece and the orientation of its open ends determine the ways it can connect to its neighbor.  The final lattice-like assembly is governed by the structure of its components: there are certain forms the units can easily take on, and others that it absolutely can't without breaking.

The sculpture is cut from Baltic birch plywood and suspended with handmade brass chains, each themselves comprised of thousands of identical pieces.
