Soft Ice: Cold in the Balance

Irregularly shaped, semi-transparent bulbs cling to a cold, regularly shaped bar of metal.
This is a test study of a development version of "Jelly Fish," the theme of which concerned contrasts and a feel of touch.

Contrasts
Hardness/softness
Form/formlessness
Whole/parts
Reflected light/penetrating light
Outside/inside
Package/contents
That which is original/that which comes after Enduring/transient
Mass/light
Material/time

An element is first defined when set against a contrasting element.
The definition of an entity requires the measuring of the "distance" from its opposite.
Distance in terms of concept and distance in terms of feeling should be measured at the same time. Which is faster, the touch or the thought ?
This architectural work is, after all, a kind of scales.
