Just discovered this stunning work called Submerged Turntables by artist Evan Holm. Besides simply bringing an element of wonder (how is it playing under water?) he has a deeper meaning for the piece: "There will be a time when all tracings of human culture will dissolve back into the soil under the slow crush of the unfolding universe. The pool, black and depthless, represents loss, represents mystery and represents the collective subconscious of the human race. By placing these records underneath the dark and obscure surface of the pool, I am enacting a small moment of remorse towards this loss. In the end however this is an optimistic sculpture, for just after that moment of submergence; tone, melody and ultimately song is pulled back out of the pool, past the veil of the subconscious, out from under the crush of time, and back into a living and breathing realm."Watch the video below.More good stuff on his website, where he says he is currently working on what should be one of his best pieces to date. An artist to watch!
