From a window on the 47th floor overlooking Central Park in Manhattan, this series of sculptures was created in-situ, in the moment, using wet clay and without studies. On the streets below is a colourful, fast moving sea of people. A crowd as diverse in appearance as they are in background, profession and character. Each person unique with their own story. Yet from above, they become one; an image that is both consistent yet constantly changing every day. These fleeting moments, instant impressions are frozen in time in one hundred small sculptures.
