"...The perfect balance and tension has been attained..."

Our life is shaped by our intentions and the decisions we make, and also by our circumstances, serendipity and misfortune. We constantly strive for an existence that has balance, to have goals but also enjoy the moment. This creates a certain tension, with everything held together by an ephemeral invisible energy, always on the verge of falling apart. The blocks are a metaphor for how each of our unique lives is built. They are held together by a ribbon representing how fragile and precarious is the life that we have created. The perfect balance and tension has been attained, if only for the moment.
