Unfired Stoneware - 60"x12"
With the interactive aspect of “Nothing” the viewer gets to experience first-hand what it’s like to deal with mental illness. The use of unfired clay allows the piece to be fragile and intimidating. With the piece standing in your way, you must make a decision to cross it or let it hold you back. This allows me to force anxiety onto my viewers to help them understand the seriousness of mental illness. Anxiety is the fear of nothing.
After Nothing has been destroyed, it brings new light to interactive ceramics. Opening the conversation to mental illness and overcoming it to free yourself.
