Steel, Moving blanket, Stretch satin, Recycled polyurethane foam, Sand    This work physically iterates one of the theories central to R.D. Laing’s 1960 book The Divided Self which posits that the primary mechanism of psychosis is a widening divide between what the author calls the “embodied” and “unembodied” self, or, the physical body and the metaphysical place where an individual identifies their true self. This sculpture weighs as much as my body and is designed to be moved, dragging behind the viewer, the literalize this divide and subsequently confront it.
