- Tetra: interactive, mixed media artwork by Louise Philbrick featuring coral, metal and magnets

"Tetra" is a mixed media piece made with coral, magnets, metal and straightened barbed wire. (You can move around the coral pieces at will on the metallic surface.) I'm fascinated by how people attempt to "read" the coral pieces as if they are symbols... And by how the symbols may be "read" differently, depending upon the order in which the coral is arranged. It is human nature to try to make sense of things.
