‘Connected’ is a sandstone sculpture of an embrace between two figures. The arms of one curl around the other, joining to form a supportive spinal structure. Both figures have a hole on the left side of their head. The holes mirror each other, connecting the two bodies. One figure sits awkwardly, barely supporting the other. The smooth surface of the sculpture creates a sense of unity while also suggesting unease.
