Watching You

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.
