Caroline Wirth’s series of baby head sculptures is called Discipline. These sculptures, cast in materials such as concrete, lead paint, lead-contaminated dirt and broken glass, represent the environmental dangers posed to our children. In creating these sculptures, Wirth sought to inject some discipline into her life as an artist and mother, as well as capture her own son while bringing attention to the daily dangers of pollution that surround all children. Wirth laments the need to discipline children away from potential dangers: drinking tap water, playing in dirt that may be contaminated or skipping on sidewalks constantly strewn with broken bottles.
