The Jacob’s Ladder was a toy we forgot. We flipped it, watched its cascading blocks fall as if they could forever, then we threw it in a box and left it for decades. It was a puzzle we couldn’t solve - a simple mystery and an unanswered question.
As adults, we were confident we could comprehend it - reverse engineer and calculate the coefficients, deconstruct it and build it over-sized, watch it closely in slow motion. We thought we would understand, and yet it has left us equally bewildered.
Things Change is a brand new collection of work by Spokane based Factory Town.
It consists of over-sized Jacob’s Ladders and is inspired by the nostalgia of childhood and the modern world’s constant reminder that things are forever changing and forever the same.
