this is what i was working on when i was finished with post-bac. i was welding steel to create armatures, and then using fibers techniques to create these sort of creatures. i also learned how to cast aluminum, which was pretty cool.
final show for my accumulation & metaphor fibers class with susie brandt in fall 2007. located in the lobby of the brown center. i showed my daily 'chronicle' piece, which consisted of transcribed conversations i had with my parents every night for a month, plus corresponding sketches based on what i heard during those conversations. the viewer could listen to a recording of my voice reading the transcriptions and then draw what they heard on paper provided, which i then made into a book.
this was my first installation of this piece. the little balls are made from chestnuts or pine cones wrapped in steel wool which was then wrapped in gold or silver lamé. we revised our pieces three times in this show.
