my work- sculptures

Since yesterday I wrote about sculptors whose work inspires me, here’s the accompanying post: my own work

Most of these pieces are from my Art Education undergraduate days at Northern Illinois University. The first piece is from my studio art class at community college.

First up is a collaborative piece that I remember taking ten people in our class over a month to complete, working 4 hours per week assembling grids of dry pasta. We assembled a 5′ tall tower constucted completely out of dry pasta noodles (‘cemented’ together with water), and then suspended it from the ceiling, dangling about 3′ from the ground. The end results were a feat to pull off and rather impressive given its physical scope. It nearly crushed under its own weight, so it was a challenge to evenly distribute the weight and suspend the tower using  only cord and a plank of wood.

(My piece is the 3rd on the top row. I know this isn’t a sculpture, but it was in an exhibition, so I figured why not show it here?)

Thanks for taking a look at my work, and I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Graduate School is sounding better and better everyday!
