Thought Casts

This is a group of seven casts of my everyday body vocabulary. These casts are the beginning of a gesture bank. The attempt is to make tangible fleeting expressions from everyday conversations. Clay captures the smallest imprints from my body. It becomes the retainer of a moment, a thought, a memory. When handled by someone other than myself there is a transfer of energy and knowledge from the maker to the viewer. It is the sharing/surrendering of a private moment and place to another. It becomes interesting to see how the object ‘fits’ or does not fit the viewer.
