I found this to be an interesting sculpture. Although it is pretty simple, a white table with a couple of with a couple of trays on top, we all know what this is representative of even taken out of context. For this reason, although it is simple, I think it can make a big statement. When reading further about the sculpture, the thought behind the creating this particular sculpture was very intriguing to me; especially where it is stated that "you empty your pockets to prove you hold no items intended to cause harm. It is taken as a matter of course that movement from one place to another is closely shadowed by the threat of imminent erasure." This idea is somewhat depressing, that as you move through life, it can sometimes be stalled, but death is unavoidable and always looming.
