DESCRIPTION

a, an ethereal circle of orange light projected and 'put upon' a pedestal, represents the intangible, cyclical nature of Lacan's 'objet petit a' , the unattainable object of desire; it exists but can never be grasped. Located in The Cube, this piece, a symbol of frustration and futility--a satisfaction that cannot be realized -- exists in its own thwarted temple, an intermediary space trapped longingly between the outside world and the interior gallery.
