Sculpture As 100 Hyperlinks is a net-art piece which makes use of an array of hyperlinks to imply the existence of a piece of sculpture. Each hyperlink points towards an aspect of creation of the sculpture, and hence altogether complete the sculpture. However, there is no instantiation of the sculpture’s physical nor visual form at any stage. The sculpture hence does not exist in reality, relying solely on the hyperlinks to suggest otherwise. Perhaps the imperceptibility of the final sculpture speaks of a longing to return to more kinesthetic methods of production. However, the work is not just riddled with sentimentality, but instead is a contemporary revival of material empathy, in which as humans, we always choose to resign to what is real.
