Eatock says, “The shelf sags under the weight of its contents in a graceful arc, the top edges of all the books are perfectly flush as a result of a conscious selection of volumes chosen to accommodate (or compensate for) the arc of the sagging shelf.”
Daniel Eatock is my favorite kind of conceptual artist: one who shows us the missed harmonies of this world rather than its discordances. His hand is patient, his mind is clear. Check out three of my favorites (trees, shoes, shelves) and then spend some time with the entire site. I like Daniel Eatock a lot.
