The developmental state that organs exist in, before they mature is known as primordium. This work focuses on the undifferentiated state of human sex organs before full development. Many people are questioning their role in society as ascribing to a gender binary system. These are people who have tremendous courage. This sculpture deals with transcending the awkwardness and difficulty of being an outcast and those of us for whom society is made a comfortable place.
The juvenile state of the sex organs does not differentiate between opposite polarities. In Buddhism, when your consciousness fully develops, you leave behind the world of opposites. In this state, there is no good vs. bad, or up vs down, etc., there just is. This brings us to the enantiodromia, the condition where things flip in and out of their opposites.
This work can be gently spun around by the viewer/participant. The spot-lighting casts a shadow on the floor. The wheel symbolizes progression as the sculpture hangs from a noose, tied to the ceiling. Aspects of progression or continuity (wheel) and despair (noose) are explored here. The hasty assembly of the sculpture points to a feeling of desperation or a never-ending awkwardness with which someone who is an outcast has to deal with a world that continually rejects their existence. The viewer/participant could empathize with or consider their role in this scenario when in direct contact with this work by turning the piece one direction or the other.
This work is no longer extant.
