Public Art Saves The World, Maybe.


This public sculpture is an exercise in tedium, which seeks not to celebrate the end of the world but rather to embellish its significance through the use of physical and formal elements. This piece above all is a celebration of misappropriated practicality and our society’s inherent need to overindulge in the absurd and unnecessary. This piece is additionally a commentary on our ephemeral status on earth and the notion of its own potential demise. Consider it a sacred and secure defense for an intangible and indefensible idea. If there was ever an attempt to protect our selves against that which we cannot predict or rationally observe and critique with our own senses and vast excesses of wealth and technology, than it is manifested within this sculpture. Simply put “indefensible space”.
