A THING NOT AN OBJECT
A piece that transforms stone (a thing) into an object, using a primal state of the human condition: childhood and play. Linking them is the force of gravity, operating over a body to transform the stone into a slide. The transformed stone appeals to the moment when climbing things creates a mixture of fear and inevitable desire, culminating in an experience of sliding down. Speed without the need of physical coordination, a fact not a talent.
