Art Description: "Invaders Must Die" is a work about the hordes of loyal and mindless drones, swallowing whole what they are told as reality and willfully participating in advancing their ideology through whatever means necessary. The goggles on each one serve to hide their identities and to conceal the direction of their gaze, hence the faces cannot pass judgement, nor can they be judged. The face is our window to our identities and these represent the assembly line worker making munitions in the factory, the soldier in the trench, or the mass of individual fanatics; all coolly preparing to blow themselves up in a car loaded with explosives on a busy street corner. Ultimately this piece is autobiographical in that it is a representation of myself and my coworkers from my time designing components for weapon systems. Figuratively speaking, the face is mine and represents my active participation in our violent society. Brancusi’s, "Endless Column", was a direct inspiration for the composition of this piece and while his work stands as a testament to the Romanian dead of World War One, my sculpture commemorates the facilitators of death.
