Goliath

Goliath is one of my most well known sculptures.  Originally built as part of my MFA show at U.C. Berkeley, he was later purchased by a private collector and installed in his front yard in San Francisco.  Unfortunately Goliath’s anatomical correctness roughly equated his political incorrectness and his new neighbors took violent action against him.  The damage was not dire however, and the sculpture was re-built.  The video above shows Goliath in his original context as part of my MFA show, and then later at his permanent home.

Materials:

Pots, pans, air conditioning ducts, plumbing sections, baking tins, gas pump, street light covers, barbecue cover, water pitchers, coffee makers, steel, motors, lights.
