Sitting Without Purpose, 1998

Size: 95x95x112cm

This life size cardboard work is made entirely from recycled cardboard and hot melt glue. It is about an ordinary man who comes home from work at the same time each day, takes a deep breath, turns on the TV, sits in his chair and wonders why? The work questions the idea of what it means to be sitting down and the link between the perceptions of ability and disability. It now forms part of the National Disability Arts Collection & Archive collection (NDACA), and has been exhibited several times over the years.
