Notes on this work

The Ivy
word sculpture 

The Ivy and Le Caprice word sculptures were made purely to give pleasure and to give it by virtue of the inexhaustible number of variations each is capable of, mildly and indefinitely. They have precedents of greater ingenuity in literature, notably of course in the work of Raymond Queneau and H.W.K. Collam (whose faceted gravestone is a place of pilgrimage for all concrete poets). These however do have the advantage in that they are both solid and moveable and invite the kind of participation from the reader/spectator that gives curators and conservators (those current rulers of the museum world's roost) the heeby-jeebies.
