College People: Colleagues, Racketball, Runners, Reading, Baseball, Woman Walking

The installation is seven sculptural units intended to create an environment of human activity that exemplifies the dynamics of college activities in this area at Weber State College. The sculptural figures involve colleagues, racquetball, runners, reading, baseball, a woman walking, and ballet. The work is the expression of selected, powerful, and pervasive two-dimensional images in three-dimensional space. The late twentieth century is dominated by two-dimensional images as seen in text, signage, video, and film, all requiring one particular view to receive a message. The work expresses the condition of selected viewing. Various views give a variety of information about individual pieces and only from a direct front or back view do the “parts” complete the “whole.” The sum is greater than the parts, and yet, the individual pieces can have significance of their own beyond that of relationship to other elements; possibilities are limited only by the viewer’s imagination. As interesting as the fragmental pieces are, they are primarily parts of a larger idea, similar to the study or observation of words in a sentence.
