The throat is the center of communication and self-expression, the site for manifestation, transforming ideas into actualization. Related to the chakras of Vedic philosophy, in Human Design this energy center is a nexus- this crossroads may creatively “voice” through its connection with the mind, identity, ego, heart, emotions, gut instinct and/or intuition… from where does one “speak” and is the voice effective?

This apparatus might serve as antenna and amplifier- receiving, boosting, or translating a message. Or, it may act as heatsink – dissipating and projecting energy out; a pressure release. It presses the neck back, opening the throat in preparation for an exchange – giving, receiving, or transforming expression with creative singular voice. The form of the vessel is a collector- metaphorically here, for vibration and sound, filling or emptying with its conductive metal.

Raised and fabricated red brass, yellow brass, patinated steel
