woollahra small sculpture prize
Have entered this piece into the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. I'm interested in etymology. I have been learning Hungarian for the past nine months and it has heightened my awareness of my primary tongue, English. In this sculpture, words and numbers combine and transmute into more complex meaning. Unless you grow up in a culture, you can't really recognize the hidden implications in a simple phrase. The piece is called 'Ordinal', and the face is stamped with the word, BORN.
