dc.description.abstractCharting the Self can be understood as a process of manifesting revelations of existence through the metaphor of large scale figurative sculpture. By focusing on three ways I understand the human experience I have developed an enduring understanding for the nature of our physical condition while simultaneously gaining a deeper understanding for consciousness through the implication of the mind as a void. Physical awareness, time, and mental capacity served Charting the Self as variables which informed the response to the question, "What is it to be?" Perception was revealed as being local to the mind and altered through awareness to the self in time and space both as metaphors and in the action of realizing figurative sculpture ten times larger than life.
