Jason Yi’s sculpture is what really enticed me. Besides having similar qualities to work of my own, like scale and bulk use of materials, I also found his thought process very compelling. Although he did not present this while talking about his pieces I couldn’t help but to be confronted with his roots in eastern-philosophy, extending into his curiosity towards landscapes. With hearing both his more intellectual and contemporary approach to this idea, I decided to approach this piece with similar functions of curiosity towards something that exists on its own into a man made structure functioning as a nod towards these scenes. My sculpture is all of a being, place, and a failure of its own. It contradicts itself with the battered metal in the midst struggle and the lethargic yet graceful attitude of the dyed burlap. These materials have been ripped apart and forced back together a number of times being recreated again just as Jason Yi’s piece live; waiting to dye and be born again.
