PASSAGE

 

Passage hints at the intertwining and ever-changing relationships that mankind, the mechanical and nature all have with one another.

 

It is a sculptural installation of a man, in a captive gesture of leisurely walking while his hand sweeps through stalks of wheat. 

 

Viewers may wonder … is this a man? Is it part robot? And what is the fine line between each that exists in modern day society?

The wheat that grows beside him symbolizes abundance, life, fertility, food, subsistence, without which we as a human race would not exist. 

 

Passage hopes to open up a dialog about humanity and the advent of technology and mechanics. And lastly, of utmost importance, he is a reminder of our absolute reliance on nature. 

 

Where do these paths or passageways intersect? 

 

Where are we going?
