A Superior Form
A Superior Form is a sculpture exploring the male psyche using the now discredited science of phrenology.
“The Personality traits of Man are determined by reading the bumps and fissures in the ‘Superior Form’. Based on the concept that this form is the organ of the male mind and that certain areas have localised specific functions or modules. The mind has a set of different mental faculties, each represented in different areas of the form.”
