The table is completed with a couple of coats of white wash to facilitate a feeling of furniturness, even out the color and to add to the concept of our blindness to suffering. I bought a plate and glass from the local thrift store to see how it would add to the tableness of the work. The additional symbols do add some interest. I am surprised at the total figuritiveness of the work. It really does have an autoplastic response indicative of someone bent over. While in the below pictures the chains are laying on the ground, they will finally be draped over the legs to give a downward visual pull. In the final installation, there will be water in the glass and used napkins and crumbs on the plate to give the work a sense of immediacy.
