Please don’t think that because I haven’t uploaded a project in a while, that I stop working with wood. Its quite the opposite, I’m busier than ever focusing mainly on furnishing an eco-art resort which opens September 2014. Beside the one of a kind furniture pieces and interior, ill be making my organic sculptures outdoors.
The one in the photos are from the Malasimbo Music and Art Festival 2013 that took place from March1-3, Mindoro Philippines. I did an installation the year before so I knew what to bring this time: (1) bring camping gear, (2) rappelling equipment, (3) handsaw, (4) two machetes, (5) cookingware, and (6) military shovel. I took a small boat to the island 150km north of Manila.
During the previous year, I camped and made a 10ft sculpture within 11days (5days of gathering materials in the wild/ 6days of interlocking and weaving a person sitting on a tree). For this year, I camped and made a 14ft sculpture man sitting on top of mointain that has a 45degree incline all in 7days. 2days of gathering and 5days of running up the mountain and asseembling it using simple barefoot carpentry.
