The large black spheres and the longer, oblong shape lying flat may represent the artist's ruminations about the relationship between male and female bodies in a patriarchal society. The room in which this piece has been installed in also plays a role in the piece. The columns of the room provide an obstruction, interrupting the dynamic of the spheres and the oblong sculpture. The sculptures seem to be made out of a soft, shiny, black plastic, such as vinyl or latex. They appear to be filled with gas like a beach ball. Upon closer look, the shapes are not perfectly round due to the amount of gas or fluid pressure inside the sculptures. (Nicole Wang '26)
