Woman Walking To The
Sky was completed soon after Man Walking To The Sky. Since Strasbourg
is near Kassel, there was some hope on my part to line up the invisible
trajectories of these two poles as they rose up into the sky - a sort of
inter-country installation. Ultimately, I couldn't work this out.
When modeling this woman in clay, I asked
some female friends what they would prefer to be wearing if they were
walking up this pole. Almost all of them answered pants or jeans, and
therefore that is how this woman ended up. However, in retrospect, I
think I would have preferred to put a dress on this woman, possibly to
more clearly differentiate between the male and female figures.
