Evolving Sphere

Bronze     2005

Thomas A. Yano

A basic precept of evolution is that organisms do not evolve, populations evolve. In the same way, their societies/cultures and environments evolve.

The outer sphere of this sculpture and the various design elements show events in our unique and changing environment. The broken tectonic surface and the flowing water lines connect the outer sphere. The measured arc of time sweeps through the sphere.

Knowledge/culture is represented by the book, violin, and sculptural pedestal. The wheel and rectilinear components represent man's desire to build and innovate. Scales show our quest for justice and law. The double helix (evolution), eventually leads to the complete and perfect sphere at the center of the sculpture.

Seeking Nothing

Bronze     2005

Thomas Yano

An American monk said one of the hardest things to do is nothing--especially for a long time. The hands of the sculpture reach for something, and that something is nothing.

 

Directing the Stars

Bronze     2005

Thomas Yano

This sculpture is a person feeling the universe around us; the sense that we flow with and are observer and participant of all that exists. 

 

Flautist

Bronze     2005

Thomas Yano

Throughout history the simple flute has been a basic form of expression. That a hollow reed with some holes and slits can produce such timeless sounds attests to its importance. Ponder this sculpture for awhile and the sounds will come.
