An old legend tells of a giant mud creature formed by man and brought to life by magic. Created to serve and protect, this humanoid had no will of its own, but carried the potential to harm. It eventually got out of control and was turned into dirt again.
I spent ten days alone in a ravine, forming and deconstructing nine six-foot-long creatures of sand. Reacting with ancient creation stories, this project generated works that live on the spectrum between passivity and aggression.
