3D SLS printed hand, gold ring, gold chain, glass and powder coated steel base. Dimensions: 1.20m x 80cm x 60cm, gold chain 12ft.
A giant 3D printed hand pinches a gold ring held aloft by a twelve-foot long, delicate gold chain. The ring simultaneously evokes the social contract of marriage, the ambitions of alchemy and the Midas touch. The suspended ring, transfixed in a timeless moment, is an impossible proposition; it cannot be possessed nor released.
