Artist Statement:

    Fear of Small Numbers invites reflection on minorities in a globalized world. It is intended to pose the question of why minorities – which by definition are small in number and by extension weak, if not powerless – have been, and continue to be, the object of fear, exclusion, and even rage.

    My representative of Small Numbers is vaguely human. His/her shape is like a human fantasy of a non-human alien and has a large single eye, which suggests that it sees all. On close inspection, viewers will discover their own eye reflected back to them.
