This sculpture is a collection of tightly rolled strips of magazine pages arranged in a radial pattern to form a circle. My original intent was to arrange the rolls at different lengths so that, instead of a circle, they formed a heart.
But the laws of physics, the bane of artistic freedom, intervened, leaving my envisioned artwork in tatters. Even the title I had devised, because it had pertained to the heart, was ruined.
So I was stuck with the exasperating task of finding a new title. After a few days of fruitless thinking, inspiration struck. “Nescio,” a Latin word, translates to “I don’t know,” which seemed sufficient to describe my predicament.
This sculpture stands as proof that Latin class may actually be helpful in life.
