Having a Moment

“Having a moment with you, having a moment with your phone”, 2011,Wood, enamel, fabric, furniture foam, bleach and phone chargers

I saw a couple hugging on the subway platform one day. A man hugging a woman very earnestly while she looked at her phone behind his head. It inspired this sculpture that is also based on a victorian era chair in the American wing of the collection at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

This images shows the bouquet of phone chargers available in the arm rest along with the screen printed cushion that depicts passages from the Tao Te Ching in bleach.
