THIS LIMITED EDITION IS SOLD OUT.

The ME Block is an approximately thirteen-inch cube of polished mahogany carved with the letters “M” and “E.” Meant to be read as a three-dimensional interpretation of the word “me,” the piece is also a compelling study of formal elements. Nancy Dwyer’s work is concerned with the mystery surrounding common words, and The ME Block is the artist’s wry commentary on our society’s notions of identity.
