This sculpture is inspired by the poem “High Quality Information” by Gary Snyder and is contemplation on today’s education system- a continuous theme throughout my work.

A life spent seeking it
Like a worm in the earth,
Like a hawk. Catching threads
Sketching bones
Guessing where the road goes.
Lao-tzu says
To forget what you knew best.
That’s what I want:
To get these sights down,
Clear, right to the place
Where they fade
Back into the mind of my times.
The same old circuitry
But some paths color-coded
Empty
And we’re free to go.
