Segmented or Whole
Found clay and twine

Segmented or Whole bridges together different parts of the Birds Hut structure using rope and circular clay forms. Local clay is hand-shaped around twine to create a self-regulated formal measurement time and record. Gravity plays a significant role determining how each piece is hung based on the distribution of the clay’s weight among the contorted flaccid rope portions. The single congruent rope line eliminates the fragmentation of individual moments.
