Lorne Beug - Hawk's House Description

The piece that I called Hawk’s House is trying to represent the prairie landscape in a new way that shows aspects of the past, the present and the future in the same piece. So it has the drill cores that represent the past going down below the surface of the earth, then the flat surface, the tiled landscape, is like an aerial snapshot of the landscape at present. And then the future as suggested by the glass and the copper pyramid on top, which by their materials…which are linked to more higher tech type of pursuits, the glass being one of the main building materials of modern architecture. The copper, sort of an essential part of electronic circuitry, they are trying to suggest a future dimension to the landscape.

So this has this kind of division, I guess, between past present and future.
