The goal was to design a sculpture depicting an ordinary, everyday activity. The form could only consist of a certain amount of pieces equal to my age—at the time I was nineteen. Since I read everyday, I chose to show a snapshot of me reading a book on a couch. I asked a friend to take a photo of me reading. That photo became the source of a series of sketches. I wanted the form to be an impression of those rough sketches—just accentuating the basic shape.
