Artist Statement: It comes into this business of design and the relationships and the rhythms, and if you can link into the actual so-called life rhythm in your work then I think you are getting a little bit closer to the universal, whatever it is, that makes us tick. It always fascinates me that you can stand in a room and you can tune in to any damn place on earth if you have got the right set inside you. In other words, we are filled with radio waves and god knows what not. And so it’s the relationship and the sensation in the connection of everything…and a relationship not only to the things around us, but to the things outside and then on to the universe and inter-stellar space and gosh knows what. It’s the rhythm and the apparent laws that make these things work. And I think that’s what we are trying to express in a very feeble sort of way. Frank Hinder.
