Alone Together won the Nathan Miller Award from juror Kendall Buster and can be viewed on Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's campus until Summer 2023.
At any given moment in our lives, we struggle with the duality of having something and not having it. Zoom out and then we encounter others that have more or less than we do. These moments start when we are born with our families and then migrate to the playground as we learn to play with others. Alone Together talks about the in-between moment of that realization and asks the viewer to contemplate these kinds of moments by actively participating with the sculpture. This moment of interaction is intended remind the viewer that encounters in our lives may be messy, difficult, and hard but can lead to change in understanding ourselves and each other.
