'The core of Krishnamurti's teaching is contained in the statement he made in 1929
when he said: "Truth is a pathless land".
Man cannot come to it through any organisation, through any creed, through any dogma, priest, or ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique.'
(p. 5, "To Be Human" by Krishnamurti)

Coming Together (2010)
jesmonite, hair

A sperm penetrates an ovum during fertilization and the tail tells a tale of what happened.

Detail of 2 is 1

2 is 1

Click on the link above to watch a short video showing pics of the sculpture 2 is 1.

The sculpture 2 is 1 is androgynous. Depending on the point of view it could be perceived as either male or female. Even though true hermaphroditic humans do not exist, Désirée believes that regardless of our biological reality we have both masculine and feminine qualities.

Through understanding and awareness we can synthesize our double nature and thus undergo a process of inner alchemy turning ourselves into gold.
