How to Look at Sculpture stages a single-channel audio. A male voice recites a spoken word narration that encourages a connoisseurship of art history while directing the listener to appreciate sculpture by looking, touching, walking around, and seeing. The sculpture, inspired by slapstick props in early comedy, functions as a composition in space.
