Empathy Table

cherry, brass, 33" x 23" x 9"

Not having legs of its own, Empathy Table rests on the laps of two users. It is stabilized by their arms which are placed into the carved indents of the tabletop. In this work, I seek to point out how one can show agreement with another by assuming the same posture. As a result of interacting with this table, the two users are forced to be in "empathy" with one another, a comfortable conversing distance apart.
