If this isn’t just a collection of very personalized tchotchkes, then I suppose this is a show about identity. How identity changes over time, or in different situations, or from different perspectives.
This work started with a low resolution digital scan of my head. I then added more detail to that scan with a digital sculpting program before I then start to scale, multiply, blend, deconstruct, and warp the original sculpt into the various pieces that you see here. While some are significantly morphed and can take on an almost monstrous quality (like creatures from a circus freakshow AND the hall of the mirrors at the same time) others might only differ by having an incredulously raised eyebrow, or a marginal shift in scale.
Many many heads. None of them are absolute. None of them are final. While the sculptures exist as unique objects (just as a memory is a unique moment in your life, or a loved one has a unique perspective of who you are), they have infinitely more meaning as a sum or sequence. They are all merely iterations in a process. Each identity evolving from the past and branching off into many different possible futures.
