Up a long steep flight of stairs, in a secluded circular clearing, the stone and glass Platform 2011 is revealed as viewers arrive – sweating, breathless and gasping for air.  Amidst the clear air of the pine forest, the sculpture's properties act to regulate these bodily functions.  Sealed between two skins of polished glass, a sliver of factory air remains neutral, and transacts hot and cold.  Backed by a black stone slate, these separated skins support a double image of viewer, landscape and view.  In this quiet elevated space, Platform is both a lectern and an altar; a prop and a stage for performance, manifesto and critique.
