Observing Ourselves – The Naked Self
‘What we do is a reflection of who we are. Our actions today affect what happens to us tomorrow. The cube is symbolic of everything that is man made. It has been made deliberately reflective in quality, absorbing all that surrounds it. We the viewer catch our own distorted reflection in it, reminding us that we are all here on this planet together.
The figure is seated on the ground next to the cube. Not on top of it elevating his importance. He is sitting on the grass reminding us that we are all connected to the earth. The naked self reflected.’
