Reach (wooden installation in my college)
12.5’ x 6’ x 4.5’ *Assemble on site within 6 days with no assistance.
My organic sculptures are my inspiration for my furniture. And yes, all woody material I used were just found.
This is 2 of 4 sculptures that was part of my thesis for Environmental Studies in college about making art in a sustainable manner. The actual artwork is for my senior project for my other major, Studio Art Sculpture.
I did NOT use any glue, rope, metal fasteners or power tools… I just wove thousands of bendable materials (muscle groups) over least or non bendable materials (the skeleton) while balancing everything as a solid a piece
