Daniel Firman’s Empty Figures

Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm has been developing an ongoing series of “One Minute Sculptures” since the late 1980′s in which he poses himself or his models in unexpected relationships with everyday objects close at hand, prompting the viewer to question the very definition of sculpture.

As the sculptures are fleeting and meant to be spontaneous and temporary, the images are only captured in photos or on film.
