Encounters

Encounters. What I encounter, meet, come upon, find. Or, encounters between people, their conversations, their interactions.

Some encounters fall into the category of “weird and wonderful.”

My encounters with sculpture have me trying to understand it in relation to its material, size/scale and location. How does the setting influence how the sculpture affects me? Cemetery or museum? Outside, in front of a museum, or inside? Sculpture park?
