piece took over a year to complete. The top disk spins, and the opal
points to a particular symbol. I love symbols and grieve the fact
that there are hardly any indicative of American culture, so I drew
from various sources, including alchemy and Norwegian hobo ideograms.
Included are the symbols for fire, pregnant woman, and "safe
to sleep in the barn." The back is pierced to reveal tiny mirrors
inside that also spin. The title refers to the law in quantum physics
meaning it is impossible to know both the exact location of a particle
and its velocity simultaneously. It's a perfect metaphor for my often
fragmented life. The only way I know where I am is when I stop moving
at full speed.
