Foundation 3D Exhibit up at MCAD













Five images!
Images 1 and 2 are two angles of the same sculpture, and three is a detail of the seat. Materials: Found object pantyhose, safety pins, batting, rocks (used as weights inside chair), found object rug. And to hang it: fishing line, rope, wood cross.
The last two images are of my Bauhaus-inspired sculpture, which I've posted before, but now have better images of.
I promise I'll take photos of these in a photo studio, as well, to get much much much better images of them.
Both of these sculptures plus the rest of my class's sculptures from the same assignments will be up until Wednesday or Thursday in the main gallery space outside of the wood shop/auditorium.
That's about it. Any questions/comments/critiques? I must admit; I'm fairly proud of both of these sculptures--- they were a lot of hard work, and I've gotten great reactions for both of them!

Chair one reminds me of human organs.

and I want chair 2, cause it's cool.

It's supposed to remind you of human organs. So good.

Oh, and I may or may not be selling "Chair 2" (the large blue cube) at the MCAD art sale next year. If I do, I will probably make it very very expensive, though xP

The first chair reminds me of little legs morfed into chair form. xD but thats just me.

Alex Fritz said...

Guys... I made that sculpture out of pantyhose... Could I be more blatant in my reference to the human body? HENCE it looks like organs/legs. It's not just you.

Steven said...

Yeah, I thought intestines. I think chair 2 could fit more easily with any sort of decor...although I don't know quite where I'd put chair 1 in my house.

EXPLANATION.
NEITHER OF THESE ARE INTENDED AS FURNITURE.
CHAIR ONE ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BE SAT ON. IT'S SUSPENDED IN THE AIR.

THESE ARE SCULPTURES, NOT FURNITURE.

Explanation as follows:
If they were real pieces of furniture.
(Sorry, forgot to put quotes around "chair 1" and such as you were)
