This sculpture was conceived as an inversion of the traditional representation of the god Janus, who according to Ancient Roman theology, presides over beginnings and transitions. Depicted as having two faces, Janus simultaneously looks outward to the future and to the past. Cast from my collaborator's and my head, these forms imagine not only the bending of sight away from future and past, but also how a materially permanent merger between two distinct bodies might take shape.
Collaboration with Matthew Rosenfeld
