The Centaur is a life size sculpture with embedded videos on cellphone and tablet. It is part of the series entitled The Inner Life of Centaurs.
The videos playing in the head and the chest evoke the interplay of the head and the heart.
The Centaur is an ancient symbol of the two natures of man which has been referred to variously in many traditions as the carnal nature and the spiritual nature, the inner nature and the outer nature, the essence and the personality. There is a built-in contradiction between these two natures. The movement toward resolution of this conflict is the spiritualization of man.
