The interesting thing about the sculpture project is that it is a lesson in versatility and adaptability, in the sense that when creating nay sculptures the sculptor encounters a great deal of problems; which eventually leads to finding any way to effectively deal with and correct these issues. This then fuels the creation of the piece and adds extra depth to the piece. Experiments with gravity and suspension are my current favourite areas of sculpture within the space, as it creates a sense of tension and potential within the sculpture, bridging the gap between the Static and the Kinetic.
As we walked into the Sculpture room the other day, we were tasked with the creation of a sculpture relevant to our space, and once we began to create and expand, our sculptures all came together to create a ‘City’, which combined our own individual creations and visions into this, much like a city is crafted from the individual ideals and concepts of the people that reside within it, they influence the city in every way, full of potential.
An experiment in balance and gravity, the planks are suspended purely by the metal pole, which is something i’m very interested in, especially after witnessing the power of gravity in minimalistic Artworks.
Another experimentation in Gravity, but here this is through suspension. I really like the effect the ‘cage’ creates, as it is another experimentation into Gestalts, much like a lot of the work I am creating at the moment.
