ARTWORK > Say What You Mean

In Say What You Mean the head of an old and weathered broom is embedded within a large pile of concrete letters and the shaft of the broom is held in place by the weight of the unformed words. Next to this juxtaposition sits a small household grade bucket filled with water. The water references renewal, cleanliness, and strength. The use of the bucket and the broom creates a link to the everyday. When nurturing an intimate connection among many, how true are we to our own word? Within the pile there are no intentionally legible word formations but rather a heap of potential words from forgettable personal and intimate connections that perhaps never truly meant anything to begin with. Do we truly mean what we say, and do we say what we truly mean?
