Portal Pairing by Geoffery Booras
Portals are part of series of ceramic sculptures that respond to infrastructure, as an idea and in form. Based on the unmistakable horn-shape of a large ship’s cowl vent, Portal Pairing produces an impression of performance, simultaneously calling-out and listening. Communication — the flow of ideas and materials — is the basis of all infrastructure; this sculpture reveals the hidden pathways of our material/resource transmissions.
