On, 2015 Cast Bronze
Originally displayed as part of Acculturation Machine, 2015, Al is a conductive Bronze sculpture. On was made using lost-wax method and cannot be reproduced. This piece acts as a physical representation of the immense forms that language can take, in this case a 3 dimensional word, “On.” As an “idol” it serves as an active attempt to be an myth-maker both as an artist and immigrant.
