Kris PerryArtist Statement

“Tripod with Bells” engages its audience beyond its visual impact. The scale of the sculpture, with its massive three legs, creates a space that invites viewers to enter the piece. The ship’s wheel at the center allows participants to create sounds resonant of industrial history: the wheel, decommissioned gas tanks, and scrap metal. The sounds of the bells, created by turning the wheel, are at once eerie and celebratory – a perfect reflection of our industrial past. Inanimate scrap metal comes alive in this abstract creation, a work that suggests a creature beyond the world we know.
