The artist says that they felt free to use all sorts of different approaches. They had to work through it in words and sketches. They wanted to communicate a dialogue in this art work.

I think that the sculpture is cool. It looks like the knife blades can move. The ship looks cool. I like how it was put together. The knife ship is a really cool piece of art and I think that it was put together well. Even though it took a while I think was worth it. It looks good and I hope that lots of people enjoy it as much as I do. Tiffany Probasco
