Artist's Statement

This is not about human fallibility. Imagine someone trying his best to fly by imitating the strokes of the wings of a dove with his arms and hands. May the inability to fly be conceived as failure? You might say that it was a failure, but of what exactly? If there is no prospect of success you can never fail. (...) That the fire will burn me when I put my hand inside: that is certainty. I.e., this shows us what certainty means. Not only what the word "certainty" means, but also what it is about. We are not here to find us mutually pleasing. (...)
