I want to have three of these triangle sculptures for the show. The one pictured here is the second, and the first I shared previously on my blog. Each will be cut in a different pattern. I want to show these inverted but I need to figure out how to make a stand for them.
Part of my plan for these sculptures is to translate them into another more durable material using laser cutting. I’ll be digitizing the individual pieces before I finish and assemble the completed sculpture. I think this will look amazing in wood or metal.
Back in July I began a side project involving the creation of small individual paper cut pieces that resemble flowers or fireworks. Since then I’ve been slowly working away at this at irregular intervals with the goal of making as many as I can.
All these months later an I have made about eighty of these flowery bits, and I intend to keep going. They are cut from drawing paper painted with blue ink and each is about 3.5″ inches wide. It’s very satisfying to see the tiny pile of them grow.
The idea behind this is to create something larger from these small pieces. At the moment I’m not yet sure what form this will take or how these will all come together, but it will eventually be a striking installation.
For now my goal is to create one hundred and figure things out from there. Stay tuned for more updates…
