ARTIST STATEMENT:
“Upheaval” – an instance of violent agitation or change”
This work is a study of the physics of our relationship to the naturally evolving world. The growth of each organism affects the success of those living about it.  The exuberant proliferation and extravagant consumption of modern humans is an unnatural antagonism whose power seems overwhelming. It is a force that could easily result in a sudden and violent arrest. Mushrooms and other fungi are soft parasites that possess great destructive and consumptive energy. Their fleshy bodies punch through asphalt and dissolve the dead. This sculpture event is a monument to humankind’s relationship to the perpetual forces of eradication.
