Witnesses, a series of 6 sculptures and 7 panels, was conceived as a reflection on 9/11 and inspired by other historical cataclysmic events, such as the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii. The series explores the notion of witnessing acts of violence or trauma and examines the nature of sensations caught in a moment of time, such as longing, hope, or pain. The three-dimensional sculptures represent witnesses to the original unnerving event and now become part of the spectator’s experience as they are viewed in the context of the larger piece. “Witness III” is agitated, “Witness I” is frozen in a moment of time and exudes a palpable angst and fragility.
