Jewish tradition instructs the faithful to count the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot - between the Exodus from Egypt and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. The artist conceived each sculptural peg of this omer counter, one added each day, as a tiny abstract house. When all the pegs are in place on Shavuot, one envisions a united community.
