Such a Post Modern Moment

I love working sculpture. It’s often paid my bills, but also because it’s free from having to be ART. It can be direct, amusing, whatever, as long as it serves it’s primary purpose as bike rack or shop sign, etc.

I saw this nicely done steel shadow outside Philip Burnett’s photo studio on NE 50th. After taking the picture, it hit me. A sculptor taking a photograph of a sculpture of a photographer taking a photograph.

It was such a post modern moment that I had to leave immediately.
