Medium: Rope and steel
A Note from the Artist
Guided by my studies in philosophy and natural sciences, (Un)raveled navigates the existential relationships between mind and body as well as between body and time. The partial figure is frozen in a kind of stasis, appearing to be both emerging from and deteriorating to the formless mass of rope below. The body is a vulnerable and temporary thing—its existence is minuscule in relation to the infinite expanse of space and time. The hollow appearance of the figure is a reminder that the body is foremost a vessel. This vessel is a material extension of our immaterial selves that enables us to experience the world around us. In the same way, the rope is what forms this vessel and grounds the figure—tethering it to a material plane.
