This sculpture may entertain the eye but is meant to be felt and be touched. The work is an inventory of wood, stone, glass, and other materials intended to massage, caress, pinch, stroke, slap, rub, squeeze, pet, and scratch, etcetera. Each of the objects produces a specific sensation that is not only physical but also taps into the memory of things. For instance, the feeling of a stethoscope, a clothespin, a feather, a rubber band, or a rolling pin. A participatory device one uses to “sculpt” a series of tactile sensations with someone else.
