Every Second of Every Day

  • 19 May 2017 6-10pm

Artist Stephanie Kuebler-Preston has created a trilogy of glass human hearts, filled with electrified glowing noble gases
one heart a blue glowing argon, the second red glowing neon, and the third sculpted from driftwood.

The heartbeat represents the passing of time. Each heartbeat begins with a single, electrical impulse, or spark: the distinctive sound we hear through a stethoscope, or when we place our head on a loved one's chest, is the sound of the heart valves opening and closing in perfect synchronicity with each other. It is a two-part rhythm - a delicate dance of systole and diastole, propelling the heart's electrically charged particles through its chambers every second of the day, every day of our lives.
