‘The inspiration for the sculpture was the awesome accumulation of human knowledge and what we human beings do with it. Sometimes we use it wisely, sometimes unwisely…. and sometimes we just sit on it.’
The seat is created from a pile of books, which I have stacked to form a bench. The actual seat is two large open books. Each person is therefore sitting on a book. The seat is cast in cold cast bronze resin, 80cm high and 120cm wide.
