Stop. Stare. Sway. Repeat. Try this near and far. Allow time for the eyes to relax, as if looking through the wall. Move slowly. You may find yourself lost in the moment. You may forget you are looking at string altogether.
This is how artists Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell engage with their installation Sweet Spot. It is a meditative, low tech vehicle for an intimate inner dialogue - "What am I seeing?" This work is driven by the artists' fascination with color theory and optical effect. There is a sense of rhythm that is most effectively experienced in slow motion and in close proximity to the work. – Shawn Causey & Mark Daniell
