Sculpture 3.0 highlights the relationship we as artists share with our work. It suggests a bond similar to other human relationships that is facilitated by various social platforms that allow us to be connected 24/7 as we go about our lives even though the reality of that connection is often repetitive and mundane. Sculpture 3.0 opens itself entirely to public participation by allowing them to interact with it in person, via telephone, and/or email. Theoretically, anyone in the world with a telephone or internet connection can interact with Sculpture 3.0. This media explosion will result in an artwork that is turned on and tuned in 24 hours a day 7 days a week. **All users wishing to be granted access should “LIKE” Sculpture 3.0 on Facebook:
