“Expansion,” a sculpture by Paige Bradley. As beautiful as this work of art is, as beautiful is what Bradley has to say about it:

From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically ‘un-contained’?

Would I recognize myself if I were to expand beyond my bodies’ boundaries? That’s beautiful.
(Her other work also looks really great and is absolutely worth checking out.)
