Fancy seeing you here!
Last time, I visited the Art Centre by the shops, a new exhibition was being installed so this time I was keen to see what was what.
Dolly Kershaw's Mass and Momentum offers nine different works in which gravity and/or the participant plays a part.
To Participate, 2015 - the sign invites you to sit on the pivoted board to watch and hear the marbles whoosh about around you giving an indication of the mood and experience of the person.
Coloured gravel, 2016 - you are invited to walk over the squares of different coloured aquarium gravel and cause them to merge.
Scales, 2014 - handmade copper scales are balanced by the piles of gravel but the adjustment is altered by the flow of people in the room who are encouraged to add gravel to iron out any inconsistencies.
Magnet wheel, 2013 - horseshoe magnets are joined and interlock like fabric.
Pencil sharpening, 2016 - a fragile column of pencil sharpening
Mobile immobility, 2015 - with all the castors fixed together with the wheels facing in, the wheel created could move.
The I's, 2013 - the I shaped blocks are like a jenga tower. I rather like the expression on the dog's face outside the window who has his eye on a gardener in the corner!
I'm sure the children visiting the gallery will love to have a go with the exhibits.
