The sculptures in this series speak to both the power and the danger of ideas and of art. They might just as easily be symbols of freedom as icons of the censors that wish to silence blasphemers, pornographers and hate-peddlers. Though we have had two hundred years to think about our First Amendment, we have yet to convince ourselves that freedom of expression is indeed a protection rather than a threat. And so we still struggle with the vital question: where, after all, lies the real danger? This is created from a beautiful, attractive leather-bound book, now bristling with blades.
