The idea for the sculpture comes from combining two different ideas, as the video below explains. The ideas do not command my attention. The object is stunning and I find that it speaks to the ideas within me, regardless of its intellectual origins. I feel as though I must hold myself back, from applying a meaning to the piece that was not intended. Although I feel that the loaded symbolism would speak to any audience. It is a beautiful design and wonderfully constructed. In creating this piece I wonder where he began. I feel intrigued by the object and pushed to explore it further.
