Tinnient Campana... public.

Completed throughout last summer, installed in 2 exhibitions last Fall and installed early January 2013 in Russel Christopher Hair Salon - Tinnient Campana.

This sculptural installation of 99 bells engages the viewer's own sensory knowledge and curiosity.  To engage a bell is intuitive despite the Bell's ongoing antiquity and gradual obsoletion. 
The spatial relationship one has when near a bell is often magnetic as we are drawn to hear its tone and resonance.  Each bell is completely unique and offers the classically peaceful experience of hearing sound and feeling subtle vibration.

So thankful to Russ and Shannon to have this lovely black wall to install these bells.
Visit the salon to see the installation at 3221 E. Colfax Ave. Denver, CO 80206.
Tinnient Campana is available for purchase; if interested, please inquire.

People working together.
Catalonia, Spain - human towers made for the Concurs de Castells (Competition of Castles) held every 2 years. 
Christian and I saw a few groups building these human castles when we were in Barcelona in 2009.  It was an inspiring day in the streets - we stumbled upon a street festival (not the first time!) where we witnessed this courage, strength, trust and bondedness. 
See the rest of the photos and a bit more story on Bored Panda.
