Syringes are really symbolic and can provoke a host of different emotional reactions, mostly negative.
They can, however, alleviate pain, cure and protect against life threatening diseases, and change the way we look and feel about ourselves.
Our very existence can depend on one syringe, and they therefore deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.

The globe sculpture is called ” To Be One ” and it’s name was inspired by the poem

” To Be One With Each Other ” by George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans)

” What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together
to strengthen each other in all labour
to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other
in the silent unspoken memories ? “

I like a challenge. It takes you out of your comfort zone. I was asked to create a syringe sculpture using a client’s prototype syringes. The time frame was tight as I was busy preparing my work for the Venice Biennale. My first thought was to decline the offer but as I said I like being challenged.
This is the result. I think these syringes are stunning.
