Cusp is a highly ambitious, striking, large-scale site specific sculpture, 11 metres in height and 10 metres in diameter, the monumental design is formed by intricate metal trusses, built in green oak and sequoia.
Cusp aims to act as a destination for visitors; offering a robust but natural-looking marker in the landscape, as well as narratives that can be read and re-read in diverse ways. It is an iconic form that entices the visitor, encouraging people to use their own imagination, both from a distance as well as in close proximity to the work. Cusp engages with hidden aspects of a place, in particular ideas on dwelling. People in and on the land have been a key interest of Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva, especially the sense of transitioning of populations based on interactions with changing nature, and the sense of living in a place as a community. Woodland historically offered a place to dwell for both people and nature yet forms of dwelling and permissions to dwell have changed in line with varying industries, rulers, and the laws of the land, sometimes causing conflict between peoples or on environmental grounds or for animal well-being.
