This piece is a physical representation of the challenge of connecting over distance. Both bases rotate at slightly different speeds so that the glass occasionally makes a connection but is often left solitary. It is a constant struggle to connect with a friend or loved one when separated by distance. At times the connection is smooth and pleasant, while other times the connection is full of passion or almost nonexistent. It is a cycle that has the ability to create brilliant joy when cohesive and cause great discomfort when unaligned.
