Cement Rock Block Sculpture
Block No. 5
In the care of someone whom is no longer a friend

With Block #4 we created an open crevice in the rock (vs. the enclosed tunnels we had started out with). We felt that Block #4 was the most appealing of the sculptures so far. So for Block #5 we decided to make an even more dramatic crevice in the cement block--one that would go completely through the block and leave an opening on the front, top, and back of the block. We reasoned that such a crevice would provide a lot of light to the interior rocks as well as provide for a wider range of external viewing angles. We suspected that one trade-off in this approach would be a cement block that was weakened by this fissure and that might break more easily under duress (e.g., if it was dropped).
