Some/One, on display at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, is a comment about war. Displayed in a dimly lit, nearly empty room with intense light directed upon the sculpture, it is both moving and thought-provoking.
Thousands of individual military dog tags make up the exterior. The outstretched arms seem to me to represent the sacrifice of those whose names are there, each tag representing a man or woman, a frail human body attempting to stave off the effects of war. Inside are images of machine parts, the machinery of war at work with nothing but this coat of thin metal between it and the world.
