Each sculpture radiates a different life and feeling. Earth and Hyperbolic Object are hollow and naturally translate the gallery’s ambient sound energy into a quiet hum that can be heard emanating from within their openings.
To man, the world is twofold, in accordance with his twofold attitude.
The attitude of man is twofold, in accordance with the twofold nature of the primary words which he speaks.
The primary words are not isolated words, but combined words.
The one primary word is the combination I — Thou,
The other primary word is the combination I — It, wherein, without a change in the primary word, one of the words He and She can replace It.
Hence the I of man is also twofold.
For the I of the primary word I — Thou is a different I from that of the primary word I – It.

Primary words do not signify things, but they intimate relations.
Primary words do not describe something that might exist independently of them, but being spoken they bring about existence.
Primary words are spoken from the being.
If Thou is said, the I of the combination I — Thou is said along with it.
If It is said, the I of the combination I — It is said along with it.
The primary word I — Thou can only be spoken with the whole being. The primary word I — It can never be spoken with the whole being.
