Self Portrait

 

Although not pictured here, when installed this piece hangs from the ceiling.  It is quite buoyant. There is an eyehook screw in the middle top of the sculpture. A very long spring attaches to the hook which is tied to the ceiling. There is an abstract painting on the underside of the sculpture. The stair-step tops are shined to a nice gloss. This is a continuation of thinking about weight and public/private matters.
