The famous artist Michael Beitz has created another impressive art sculpture entitled ‘Not Now’. A replacement of the dining table, this art piece is a 18 ft. x 6 ft. x 8 ft. table made of wood and twisted in the center into a giant knot.
As the name suggests, the table symbolizes moments in our life when we do not want to talk to the other person on the table. It signifies the botched conversations we sometimes have. Either ways, the sculpture successfully conveys the idea of ‘Not Now’ in a bold yet artistic way.
The tangled wooden table is flat on either side where the users sit. The knot in the middle creates a visual barrier between the two users hence blocking any chances of conversation while sitting on the same table. You instead feel awed by the beautiful handwork of Beitz. The wood is also so marvelously curved that it looks flowy and easily pliable.
So, the next time you get the feeling of – ‘I don’t want to talk right now’, sit to Beitz’s ‘Not now’, and praise the sculpture on either sides in moments of silence.
