Isn't it strange how the most important part of a doughnut is its hole,
which is nothing? And yet without it, the doughnut is not a doughnut.
Which might explain why the Hindus who were comfortable with nothingness
had a doughnut-shaped snack called vada while the Greeks who
abhored nothingness didn't; and maybe that's why it was the Hindus who
invented the number zero and not the Greeks.
I started working on this piece when we were living in Seattle, but only
finished it after we moved to Miami. It's a model of a much larger piece,
which I also started in Seattle, called "Domicile"; I transported
its twelve-foot-long arcs to Miami where they are stored in my studio
awaiting the day I have the gumption and courage to actually assemble
them all together.
