LIVING STONES I
RELEASE YOUR SOUND
Acrylics on canvas with interactive sound, 2021, 300cm x 145cm
Living Stones I portrays the diversity and uniqueness of people. No two stones are identical, just as no two individuals are exactly alike. Each person has their own distinct personality, past experiences, and aspirations. We are all truly unique, and that is something to be celebrated and embraced.
For many, finding meaning and purpose in life comes from a spiritual connection, such as a relationship with Christ. This connection can help us to see ourselves in a new light and recognize our inherent value and worth. As the Psalmist states, "We are fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Christ is the Master-Stone in the center, who connects all living stones together. By connecting us to the living Christ, our unique sounds begin to create an ensemble, a symphony of life that is beautiful and meaningful. Our individual talents and gifts, which come from the Father, can be used to create a harmonious blend that celebrates diversity and individuality.
Living Stones I is equipped with proximity sensors and Bluetooth capabilities, allowing for an immersive experience when paired with a Bluetooth loudspeaker. You can interact with the stones in a unique way by simply moving your hand 10-20cm away from each stone, which will release a sound that adds another layer to the symphony of life.
Each stone around the central master stone produces the sound of a distinct instrument, while the master stone plays the symphony of all instruments combined. This creates a beautiful and harmonious blend of sounds that celebrates the uniqueness of each stone while also coming together in perfect harmony.
