Fusion Totem
Fusion Totem is a free-standing lighted sculpture made up of 2 levels of photographic fabric prints in the shape of a pentagon supported by metal frame. 10 separate images make up the sculpture, 2 units in each rectangular face of the pentagon. The images are portrait images of action figures/dolls fused with human faces. Each fusion image is a variation of doll/human male/female which emerge. The stacked sculpture of two images on each side results in a wide totem. The structure is about 6 ½ feet tall and 3 feet wide on each face. Diffuse light emanates from within, reanimating the totem faces with common human dualities: male/female, internal/external, real/unreal, and posing question about the space between, a mysterious glow.
