DB Lampman – I Am Within

“”I Am Within” is a public sculpture and performance project. It is about our connection to the earth and to each other. The figures stand atop the North Mound of Freshkills Park which is literally a man-made mountain of garbage on what was formerly the world’s largest landfill. The figures represent the dual hope and futility of mankind’s intervention with nature. They are reaching out in hopes of mobility, but the multiple limbs only serve to tether the figures to the earth and tangle them in their own folly. ”
