Jonathan Borofsky: Molecule Man 1+1+1

“Originally, I was fascinated by [the] molecule idea because of the simple fact that even though we appear to be quite solid, we are in fact composed of a molecule structure which, in itself is mostly composed of water and air.” – Jonathan Borofsky

Jonathan Borofsky is an American sculptor and printmaker known for works and installations often based on the human figure. This form is important to the artist because it represents not just a single person, but humanity as a whole. The figures of Molecule Man 1+1+1 are connected facing inwards, referencing the molecules of all humans being part of a collective existence.

This is one in a series of Molecule Man sculptures that includes a 30-metre tall version installed on the Spree river in Berlin.
