Commonwealth, or Wealth Among the Common
Materials: SRAM parts, extruded acrylic rod, rubber caps
Statement: I am touched by the World Bicycle Relief project, the SRAM pART PROJECT, and the hearts of strangers working to benefit and improve the lives of others. At times I look too closely at my own life; at what I have or do not have. Too often I forget to look at the big picture. I forget to see how we, all of us on this Earth, are connected and united as one. I forget to see what is important. In receiving the SRAM bike parts and being surprised by how different the parts were, I worked to unify them as an anthropomorphic nation, united for a special interest and common benefit. I worked to create a family, connected and united as one - despite their differences.
