The Leeway Residency: Transforming Prints into Objects

Some of those screen prints I shared recently have been transformed into an army of tiny pyramids. I started out with the idea of turning one print into a single 3D object but decided to maximize the paper by making multiple small 3D objects from each prints.

The first image above is of the larger piece I started out with next to my first tiny pyramid. I made about sixteen of these last week while working at The Leeway studio.

This week in the studio I decided to use up the remaining prints to make as many of the pyramids I could. They are each unique in pattern and it’s interesting to arrange them into a variety of configurations. I love them so much more now than I did as prints.

I keep wishing I had enough prints to make about one hundred more of them because that many tiny pyramids would look amazing!
