The Ripple Effect

Tam  Locke

CENTRAL COAST, NSW, Australia

Artist's Description

“When you throw a pebble into a pond, you’ll see a splash and hear the resounding plunk of the pebble. You might notice concentric circles rippling out from the locus point of where the pebble hit the water. The thrown pebble might also have other effects. It might frighten a nearby duck that leaps out of the water, hit another rock and bounce off, or scare a bunch of fish as it sinks into the pond. You are connected to the pebble, the water and the effects of throwing by the ripples the duck, and the fish. You have caused change through a single and simple act” c/o Wisegeek

My boys caused some change this night. With the amount of pebbles thrown in by boys, I am surprised the Earth didn’t flip on its axis ;)
