Sculpture description:
The appeal of Greece is somehow spiritual, the spartan geography, the sensation that given such clear light and such blue water we should cast away our worldly belongings and abandon ourselves naked to the elements. The quality of this light is such that it drove the inhabitants to produce artworks which actually use light as a medium, sculptural relief.

The Acropolis is the symbol of the greatest aesthetic achievement of the people of this landscape. In an extraordinary leap of creative sophistication an artefact of iconic proportions was produced, the residue of which continues to fire the imagination today. Ranking up-there with the superstar-symbols of the collective subconscious, It’s allure and influence cease to wane after two and a half thousand years.

So mystified by the past are we in this place and yet it is our burgeoning future that will define whether or not this symbol of human ideals will cease to endure
Artist's comments:
As the economic necessity to perform the many basic functions of living with the aid of computers becomes more apparent, so the way that we interpret the world around us is obliged to conform to a common language. The application of systematic thinking is the highway that leads to the future, but the economical necessity of effective information-storage is dictating a series of progressively narrowing portals through which we receive the world.

In hiatus three-dimensional space as defined by light relates to the inexorable slide of the way we see ourselves into the realm of the mathematical potential of machines.

The construction of form within the numerical sphere is restricted to the shortest path between two points and thus a curve, the basic building block of form in nature, becomes a series of straight lines.
