lugufelo installs a new sculpture at Riviera Beach, FL
It symbolizes human social connections, the relationships we all have with the people around us. As family, friends, and co-workers, these connections may be close or more distant, like people you know casually. Humans are a profoundly social species; our drive to connect with others is embedded in our biology and evolutionary history. It begins at birth, our relationship with our mother. The pleasures of social life set in our brains, the same way physical pleasure does. Our social connection ability is reflected in some of the most basic ways humans communicate, like the use of our voice, facial expressions, and sense of touch.
