Thou-less (2002)

Documenta 11, Kassel, Germany.

This piece was one of the first projects I was involved in the studio.  Cast stainless steel demands previous work in wax models which in this case was of a wooden chair whose shape was mutated into paper-like folds.  The result of the cast is a very disturbing encounter as one cannot grasp directly if the material is painted wood, paper or metal and as one gazes the piece finds nothing but an uncanny affirmation.  One is "Thou-less" as this pieces title.
