DETAILS ON SYNERGY 2009.03 Dimensions: Cylindrical volume 25 cm in diameter by 80 cm. Multi-media assemblage using glass vase, glass modules, and biogel spheres hdyrated with water. When spheres of the three colors, blue, yellow and orange, were mixed together, as at the bottom of the vase, the colors started to blend with each other through osmosis, resulting in spheres of many different colors of subtle hues. This is why I named the piece "synergy," as this latter effect was totally unanticipated.
