toughened sandblasted glass, white cube
2.4mH x 1.2mW x 1.2mD

Series: Subject-Object, Glazed I’s

In Untitled 2010, a clear glass I-figure rises above and splits a compressed white cube. A conceptual footing, both constraint and support, the square base grounds the text in the language of minimalism.

Within the glass, every viewer becomes 'I'. An internal voice is activated – seeing and reading the numeral 'first' and the first person present tense 'I', while being present in the first person. With shifts of light and movement, the physical body dissolves. Complicating self-image, the audience sees through themselves as they see themselves. A fine outline encases the I-figure / text and renders another ephemeral presence, an Other. Both beautiful and meaningful, 'the object' becomes 'the subject', and vice versa.
