Description: Communication requires a speaker and a listener.  Language is often inadequate.  The speaker’s words mean different things to the listener.  We lose focus on the speaker.  Our biases filter out what we don’t want to absorb.  Messages become distorted.

The top of the sculpture represents the message being conveyed. The message passes through a filter (the rock) and becomes bland, flat and unattractive.

Material: Cherry wood

Dimensions: 50 inches high x 12” x 24”
