Sensual Tension 1.png

Two sinuous metal shapes pressed up against one another, coming up to 8 feet tall. Neither piece of metal has almost anything in common with the other. The taller, wider, silver piece is well... tall, wide, and silver. It's brushed steel surface has elliptical holes punched through it down its entire length. It only completes one full wave from the bottom to the top.

The other piece, however, is much smaller and more erratic. It is a matte blue with random squiggles and circles of silver painted onto its surface. The ends reach neither the ground, nor the top of the piece behind it; it sits floating in the middle. There is no discernible pattern in the abundant curves that ripple through it.

The name "Sensual Tension" likely derives from two objects so disparate and distinct in nature pressed so closely together.
