This sculpture is titled, "Loneliness." It is made of chicken wire and material. This sculpture is the first of my 'wearable' sculptures. A person can wear this creature, and become "Loneliness." I did a film using Loneliness, having him walk ever so slowly across Dartmouth campus. Some people ignored him, some were surprised, but quickly escaped his path. Others came up to question him, in which case he would respond with only a bow. I am very interested in the interaction between art and people. What happens when something from, well, a different world, enters into ours? How does it fit? Can it fit? What story and character does it create?
