So, the painter, Jean Michel Basquiat, was once asked “Do you ever comply with the request to describe your work?" to which he responded
“I never know how to describe my work.”
When pressed to answer if he then felt it was important not to be able to describe it, Basquiat said “It’s like asking Miles Davis how does your horn sound? I don’t think he could really tell you."

For myself, I try to let the sculpture work with the viewer to describe itself.

I’ve been asked what this Intention sculpture is. Is it a deli stand, a jewelry display case, a prison,
a satellite, a meditation center—what was I going to put inside it, what does it do, when was I going to finish it? Is it spiritual or political? Could it represent the revolt of the status quo? Most of which it’s hard to argue with, as these interpretations are all valid.

My intention here is to set the stage where the sculpture realizes itself somewhere between the viewer's perceptual experience and my own.
