Take for example an inter- active sculpture by Joe Kerman who spent studio time at Sector 67 modifying an old telephone; when a viewer dials a number they hear excerpts from the interviews. In contrast, Briony Morrow-Cribbs (below), who received her MFA from UW Madison and subsequently taught etching there, made a hand-tinted etch- ing in which two nuzzling human-lizard hybrids are her answer to the question "Is there a language of love?" "Galatea Dreams in Ivory," a mono- type by Jody Scott Chandler (right) suggesting that a powerful imagination is the artist's answer to Shotwell's ques- tion: "What are the virtues that you bring to love?" Chandler's response: "Love or OURLOVERISLIKEˬDREˬMˬǠCTIONWEMˬY at times feel tempted to disbelieve." His piece refers to the myth of Pygmalion, a sculptor who had long eschewed love but succumbed to the powerful emotion when he fell in love with one of his own carved creations; Aphrodite turned the statue into a real woman, named Galatea, and the couple married.
