Two works featuring vertically stacked delicately balanced elements. Part of a series originally inspired by the human spine, a cascade of linked vertebrae, such a blend of durability and vulnerability, versatility and limitation, motion effected by finding and upsetting equilibriums, centring and then offsetting centre's of gravity.
