Description

Inspired by the novel Ishmael, this cage is constructed to my exact dimensions – height, width, and depth. Despite its departure from my usual sculptural ideas, I am no less passionate about its message. Our species is unique in the advanced culture we’ve created, however, there is little we can do to remove ourselves from it.

This piece was built during a one-week stay at the EMU Parson’s Center in Lake Ann, MI for the summer course Sculpture & Design in Nature.

Dimensions: H 78'' x W 25'' x D 14''
