This is a working scale submitted to the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” show in Whitby Station Gallery. Show runs from December 10 until January 8, opening reception Jan.10 at 1 p.m.
It looks simple but it took a long time to make, longer than I ever expected, not to mention the concept itself. But who cares now, it’s fun to play with those bright coloured buttons and thread. It’s good to feel like a kid once in a while!
The game is a simple one, originating from a fortune cookie message that said my wish will come true. Think a thought, wish for something, hang a button. If you balance the scale, you win, your wish will come true. Ha!
