Ti-Rock Moore seeks to connect the past with the present, making a performance piece that calls to French sculptor Auguste Rodin and his masterwork The Thinker. This piece, which has inspired great intellectuals for over a century, has always been gazed upon with honor and respect. Performers will sit upon a nine foot replica of Rodin’s base of his statue to elevate these regards to young black intellectuals and disrupt the assumptions made of youth, gender, and ethnicity.
