SCULPTURE FICTION: This piece is a segment of something larger; internetworked circuits. The ladders are, among other things, change catchers or morph portals. This one is barely a ladder, if you think of the archtype tool, but very ladder as you make the climb on its rungs. In fact she is almost creature, an undifferentiated stem available to branch in any number of directions.
