ABOUT THIS PIECE:
Among my own work, GeoGyro is one of my very favorite pieces. Unusually, for me, there was no original drawing at all; I made some patterns to cast in iron that were similar to the GeoPods from GeoVine [prime] and just…went from there. It was chaos! I remember the moment I realized that it should be a kind of 3D gyroscope: absolute elation.
Within GeoDin, this object is actually made from the GeoPods themselves: it is a remnant of their use for electricity production. As the GeoPods are “harnessed” they slowly transmogrify into this brittle, metallic substance.
