EGG CARTON

 

White Marble

 

2010

"The egg carton was the first one I approached with that in mind beforehand. Self-portrait, even. There is an obvious face in the egg carton front view, and a subtler face on each end of the piece."

By non-form, I mean an object that is common among us, but is never looked at as a form; not appreciated. Just taken for granted. Something Baudrillard-like happens in that moment, because now there is this beautiful thing, divorced from all context, that was created in that instant. It still looks like all the others, but now bears no relation to the others and stands utterly alone.
