Variations On A Form: The Spotlight Effect

Original sculpture in stoneware ceramic.

30cm x 22cm x 15cm.


The spotlight effect is the phenomenon in which people tend to believe they are being noticed more than they really are. We are all the centre of our own universes. This is not to say we are arrogant, but rather, that our entire existence is from our own experiences and perspective. But other people are the center of their own universes too, and in turn, are focused on other things. We should probably all relax a bit.

‘Variations’ is a series of sculptures based on the same original form (a nod to Barbara Hepworth’s fondness of the stone monoliths found in her beloved Cornwall).
