BITS AND PIECES of my report:
For this final project, I was inspired by the work of the site of the United Visual Artist called “Canopy,” which presented a 90 meter long sculpture submitted above ground. It was made of thousands of identical geometrical metal shapes that could reflect light and gave the viewers an experience of “walking through the dappled light of a forest.” I liked how having this massive amount of simple shapes could create this experience for the audience.
I liked the idea of making something out of objects that could easily be found at home and can be reproduced easily by others. I felt that by using color paper, it gave off this nostalgic feeling. The use of a variety of colors also adds to the playfulness of the work.
I wanted to have 3D objects coming out of the wall that takes viewers into another dimensions. I chose to have geometric shapes because these shapes reduce reality into simpliest forms. The purpose of this work was to take the viewers away from reality and into a simple and playful world.
Thanks a bundle to Diane, Vivian, Carl, Natalie, and Virginia for all their help with the folding, cutting, and taping together these wonderful and colorful little things! :D
