Listen … (Heart of Gold) snow globe

Listen Snow Globe, Camryn Forrest Designs 2012

   Listen …

Such a simple idea and yet so hard to focus on just one voice,
especially when it’s your own.

This piece took shape under its own power …
I wanted to combine the gramophone horn and the fragile glass heart.
Originally I had the idea of this piece whispering,
“My Heart Calls to You … Listen.”

But as I put the pieces together and looked at it from various angles, it seemed less and less about one person calling to another.  I thought, I waited and I listened, and I quietly edited “My Heart Calls To You.”

Finally, there was little was left from the original phrase, just one word: Listen.

Sometimes it’s the quietest voice that is most important.
