"Portrait of You"
Self Organization is a bronze sculpture that utilizes a 1938 Underwood 14" carriage typewriter as a foundation for eight individually sculpted tentacles. This sculpture will never have a copy, there is no edition and is truly one of a kind, taking around five years to complete.
The concept of this piece refers to Moore's Law, which postulates that all intelligent beings at some point reach self knowledge, a recognition of "I". This creature comes to life and reaches for the letter I, in spite of being a strange and unexpected hybrid. This is a metaphor for all of us, as we seek self organization and realization.
