This sculpture took the better part of four months to build. Most of my projects are carefully theorized, conceptualized, premeditated, and created to match my original vision. This sculpture was an anomaly (pardon the pun). It was for me, intuitive creation at the most base form or purest level. I discovered what I was making as I made it and followed the flow/path to an amorphous birth. Anomaly was a break through piece, which is really just a directional footnote to future projects.
Materials: wooden box, paint, circuit break box door, polyfill.
Skybox is an example of recycled/reincarnated art. I found the shell (the box itself) of this project discarded behind the art building at Mason, it was a discarded leftover from another artist’s sculpture that about to be sent off to the dump. The moment I saw it I had a vision of what it would become, or what I thought it should be. Before the dumpster was picked up, I pulled the box back into the art studio and started to work on it. After painting the interior of the box blue and the outside black, I used my longboard to roll the Skybox onto the grass and then filled the whole thing with clouds (polyfill).
Invoking the curiosity of passerby’s seemed to be the main objective of this piece. Conceptually, the ability of an object (specifically a box) to capture the sky or clouds, to hold them, so that a person could to touch or feel them is just an interesting idea. Many more projects will come from this.
My new multimedia photo mosaic piece entitled Cloud Mosaic has certain artistic similarities to Skybox.
Untitled (First Sculpture)
Materials: motherboard, table legs, glass jar, legos (cross), lego man, lego tree, incense burner, dream catcher, telephone wire, chess piece (Queen), good fortune frog.
This was my first attempt at doing sculpture. Though it feels more like a haptic collage to me. I had a short window of time to work cause I decided to take the class a month into the term, yet I still managed to create this very bizzare oddity from various materials and found items. There is some unique symbology in the piece. I still have not figured out exactly what it means, but I am sure one day I will.
