I would like my viewer to connect visually and physically to the moment and make it their own. The idea and the meaning (and of course, the permission) of standing on a work of art is cunning. Moreover, to stand on something is to allow it to become your stated position; your perimeters; your jurisdiction: your sacred world and pilgrimage.
