body parts
Invited to participate in a group show, I began to explore the notion of combining the body with the intellect, i.e. words as part of sculpture. I cast sections of my body to create small sculptures and recycled the text of old documents into new pieces. In some cases, the book functioned as a vessel for both body and text. The death of a close friend at school also motivated this ephemeral and fragile body of work particularly the two standing figures.
