Brickhead EARTH

Monumental ceramic brick sculpture with interactive sound and light elements.

A giant human head, over eight feet tall, the single word EARTH etched across the front.

Why a BRICKHEAD?

A personification of humankind. A visual representation of homo sapiens,

as we exist in the world today, with all of our remarkable variation and beauty.

Brickhead EARTH is all of us.

Why the word EARTH?

Earth. Our Earth…our  one and only planet.  Pollution, global warming, rising seas,

war, disease, bigotry, greed and corruption.

We must all join together and speak out for change.

What are the interactive SOUNDS?

A ‘Biophone’ of nature.

Birds, mammals, insects, tree frogs. Day chirpers and night peepers calling through the wind and rain.
