Jenn Garrett, Currents

Currents is a kinetic sculpture consisting of two forms that turn independently on their own axis. The work is reflective of relationships, specifically that of couples. Each form is independently anchored next to the other. Like two people in a relationship, they respond to the atmosphere independently, sometimes facing the same way, sometimes facing each other and other times they face away from each other.
