Project for Peccia

My goal for the time in Peccia is to create a stone scene that attracts people's interest. I intend to complete up to three sculptures (1.60 – 2.00 meters tall) made of marble. The sculptures should build a connection to the human body, inviting them to linger, to touch, to slumber, to dream or simply to be. It should be a place that makes us physically aware that we are part of a larger whole. I would like to invite you, with the rock and its security, to feel the bond to itself, to the rock and to the earth.
