Sculpture, Sight, Sound, And Touch.

Sculpture, an ancient form of three dimensional art, is experienced by more senses than I first appreciated. Perhaps this is why it feels so very powerful. I can experience its presence in space, through time, touch, and sound.

In space I enjoy how my movement around a sculpture changes my appreciation of it: it's kinetic volume, tone, and shape. With a sculpture from the ancient past I am able to connect with people from a time well before my own, especially as I use my sense of touch and ponder on how others have done the same.

The often less apparent quality of sculpture is its aural affect on the space around me. A sculpture changes the way sound behaves as it interrupts and shapes the way sound waves move through air. I hear differently whenever I am in the presence of a sculpture.
