Carved in ancient limestone from a Portuguese quarry, located at the antipodes to New Zealand, Not I has no back or front, top or bottom; only sides. The work is simultaneously and equally not ‘First’, ‘One’, ‘I’ and ‘eye’. The missing text is encapsulated in stone and recast as shadow. Creamy and soft in appearance Not I is smooth, and cool to touch.
