Between Earth and Sky, 2020

Thomas Sayre

Earthcast Concrete, Stainless Steel, Glass, LED Lights

Between Earth and Sky metaphorically asserts that humans exist somewhere between the opposites of body and mind, between the physical and the spiritual, and that we are most human when those forces are in balance. The artwork depicts both earth and sky literally with its walls cast directly into hand-sculpted earthen molds, and the wind vanes making visible the subtle and ever-changing movement of the wind. The artwork envisions that effective healthcare employs both the delicate art of healing and the rigors of high-tech science. Humans are, generally, most healthy when we live between earth and sky.
