A collection of balancing cairns and illuminated hollow fabric forms.

In the glinting absence I could see you once again

Casey Rheault

My journey through grief has been accompanied by tension and uncertainty. Cairns, or balanced stacks of stones and rocks, are historically created as trail markers and sites of burial or memorial. These sculptures, which started as personal experiments with building structures of tension, have become meaningful pathfinders alongside my search for self. As I investigate concepts of entropy, indeterminacy, and remembrance, these forms have come to represent an acceptance of the space of an absence, while marking paths left untraveled.
