My wacky sculpture is aimed at suggesting something optimistic for future attempts at public housing that in some small measure may make living in reduced circumstances a little more vibrate and a lot less soul-destroying. My modest little silly sculpture built from found objects is about hinting at a hope for better and brighter future for the lonely, the elderly and those people just doing it hard.
