In the works represented here, I am thinking about the inside of a body and what it takes to make the body function as a whole unit inside and out. As a result, artificial appendages lend the crippled the ability to walk, get-by and sustain self-sufficiency reiterating Samuel Beckettâ€™s line, â€śYou must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go onâ€ť.
