This was the first large-scale sculpture I ever constructed. I wanted to play with idea of “nothingness” combined with the modernist object, the cube. The 4 foot steel cube seemed to float effortlessly on the campus lake. Unseen by the viewer was a submerged structure containing barrels of air to float the piece. The process to conceive and construct the sculpture was both physically and mentally challenging, making it that much more satisfying to complete. It opened my mind to the possibility of larger sculptures. Prior to this piece I was often confined to smaller spaces when making my work.
