Qualia Garden – Umbel is part of the artist’s Qualia Series. In Qualia Garden – Umbel, dozens of strings spread from a common center creating a blooming tension shooting across the garden grounds.
Qualia Series alters pre-existing spaces, structures or objects, primarily using dozens of white masonry strings to reveal the observer, the observed and the process of observation. This practice invites the viewer to reconsider their seemingly ordinary surroundings and listen to a realm of perception that is unquantifiable, internal, and subjective.
