This sculpture consists of nine net sacks, hanging in a cluster, each holding a weighty, bulbous object. The nets strain under the pull of the globular weights, stretching the sacks into teardrops approximately one-and-a-half feet long. Each sagging net has been encased in clear plastic, providing structure without obstructing the view inside. The smooth, roughly spherical objects are misshapen and irregular, and are the color of off-white seashells. The nets hang in a cluster, each one tied to a twine cord which is wrapped around one of five nails protruding from the white wall.
