Nephrite Jade, Polar Jade Mine, British Columbia, Canada. Argentium™ Sterling Silver heavy-walled tubing and sheet, on a base of Goncalo Alves wood (Brazil). Height: 13.7 centimeters.
This work began as a study in internet spying and hacking. This theme persisted in the artist’s mind for 50% of the artist’s imagination. The other 50% became something quite different: People who believe in a great God want to be watched. Consider the words from the New Testament: “Indeed, every hair on thy head is numbered.” The artist threaded the tubing for tiny black machine screws, reinforcing the epoxy glue joint between silver and jade.
