Merry Go Round of Life

Artists: Jack. S
Material: Wood and acrylic on wood panel
Size: 11W x 14H

Without the ability to read music a composer uses dice to write scores. In this personalized language the amount of dots rolled on the dice signify different musical notes. Inspired by this novel approach to a familiar toy, Grace J invites viewers to move the dominoes and blocks on their artwork to co-create new combinations.

The dice are inspired by musical notation and the scores of Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi.

The viewer is presented with a grid structure of green cubes that create a landscape when viewed from a distance. The shadows from the cubes add dimension to the plane. Upon closer examination, the viewer can see holes methodically drilled into the pieces.
