Nation of Nations

This series of ten pieces collectively embodies the spirit of Walt Whitman who said in his 1855 essay, Preface to the Leaves of Grass: Here is not merely a Nation but a teeming Nation of Nations. Like statues from ancient Greece, the figures in this project are unnamed and unknown. They represent us all, without the entanglements of gender, race and religion. Each 6’8” - as tall as we could be if we stretched.
