12. The Hollow

Artist: David Manzanares

Benefactor: LI-COR Biosciences
Location: 56th and Old Cheney

This sculpture is inspired by a poem by Pablo Neruda: Potter

Your whole body has
a fullness or a gentleness that is destined for me.

When I move my hand up
I find in each curve a dove
that as if it were seeking me, as
if they had, in love, made you of clay
for my own potter's hands.

Your knees, your breasts,
your waist
are missing parts of me 

That like a hollow
fill the thirsty earth
a form, that together
we are complete like a single river,
like a single grain of sand.

Materials: Fiber Reinforced Plastic with acrylic paint. Metal structures necessary for its animation and a motor. 

The sculpture will be created using Fiber Reinforced Plastic; therefore, I will not need the Icon Poly Hands. I would like to make it mobile using a proximity sensor and a motor. I have done mobile sculptures using Arduino programming software in the Nebraska Innovation Studio.
