Water Sculpture


84″H x 24″W x 24″D

Limited Edition Artwork created for Blue Cross Blue Shield Regional Headquarters, Rochester, New York, Temple Emanuel, Charleston, South Carolina, and Seminole State College, Sanford, Florida.

This intricate water sculpture, titled From Generation to Generation (translated from the Hebrew "L'Dor V'Dor"), was created as a limited edition artwork for notable institutions, including the Blue Cross Blue Shield Regional Headquarters in Rochester, New York; Temple Emanuel in Charleston, South Carolina; and Seminole State College in Sanford, Florida. The sculpture features a series of three diamond shapes, each carefully crafted with opposing holes that allow water to emerge and cause the structures to rotate slowly.

As the water flows from each diamond, it is temporarily held within the cusps of the shapes before cascading down to the next level. This innovative design not only creates a visually captivating spinning motion but also projects the water outwards in mesmerizing patterns. The kinetic aspect of the sculpture—where each diamond transmits water to the next—symbolizes the continuous passing of life and knowledge from one generation to the next, embodying the concept of L'Dor V'Dor. This expression highlights the importance of continuity and the nurturing flow of traditions and values across generations, much like water—a vital life source—flows and sustains life.

Incorporating elements of both kinetic and environmental art, the sculpture uses the natural properties of water to animate its form, creating a dynamic interaction between the artwork and its environment. This seamless integration of movement and sound enhances the sensory experience of the space, inviting viewers to reflect on the deeper symbolic meanings of continuity and cultural heritage that "From Generation to Generation" represents. The use of oxidized metal to construct the diamonds adds a textural richness and historical depth, suggesting the resilience and enduring nature of generational legacies.
