"Point of Reference"
by Tim Jorgensen and Carissa Heinrichs
Point of Reference is a series of three large plumb bobs (The proposal is for 1 of the 3 in the series). With intentions of separating them as far apart from one another, they function to triangulate a region as a reference point of individual perceptions.
This expansive area of known and often overseen places encompasses the presence of many different people. The broken cartography that adorn the surfaces of the plumb bobs elude to the idea of the disjointed interpretations of one another’s perspective. Through the installation of these sculptures a connection is made that represents a joined perspective. One that not only includes the respective location of the other sculptures, but also the area that resides between them.
