WE ARE THE SOCIAL SCULPTURE! THIS IS THE THIRD SCULPTURE! YOU ARE THE THINKING SCULPTURE!From one to another I am for you. We have walked across a field of separation to find you here at this moment and now we would like to share an idea about sculpture, an idea that is both about and for you.
In between two ideas there exists a space, a space that is both positive and negative. In terms of drawing and two dimensional thinking, the space is usually understood in an either - or relationship; one where the space is either a "gap" or "the thing itself".
But, when we begin to understand our distance in between as multi-dimensional, determined by a variety of cultures, fears, and desires, and that the relationship between or amongst these ideas and people is dependent upon the ideas and people themselves, then we can start to discuss and act upon our relationship to the other; that is, we can begin to see that this middle space, this Third Sculpture, is, in fact, malleable to both an individual and communal will.
It is from this position of empowerment that the moment can change.
