The Living Objects are a series of dream-inspired sculptures integrated into our everyday environs. They take advantage of our innate cognitive and emotional reaction to the human form, weighing on their surroundings with their scale and energy. Hundreds of interior lights diffused by their semi-translucent skin imbue them with an emotional warmth and sentience. Each work evokes the human while remaining vague in its gender, purpose and origin, allowing it to remain a canvas for the public imagination.
