Expansion (Third Life) w/electricity, The Metamorphosis (23/40)
bronze sculpture
18.50 x 21 x 9.50 in

From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically 'un-contained'?
