sculpture critique #two (11.24.08)

My second critique included these seven time and labor intensive pieces. Out of interest for discarded materials, packaging, waste, and the strange properties and purposes of styrofoam, I deconstructed and reconstructed a block of styrofoam into these small organic forms with a needle and black thread (approximately 2×2 inches each). Their extreme lightness was exposed by the way these pieces reacted to the air and movement around them allowing the viewer to play an active role in the piece.
