Sculptural calendar (group of three sculptures)
3D Studio: Body In Time - Spring Semester
In charting the time period from being accepted to Parsons through the end of the school year, I chose to create a group of three sculptures that each represent a specific time within that time period. The first sculpture is a plaster cast of my hand and camera, which is representative of the earliest time within the calendar: the time when I was devoted to fine art photography. Eventually I became very frustrated with photography and realized that I no longer wanted to pursue it, which was the inspiration behind the second sculpture: a three-dimensional collage constructed from shards of my photography, representing a frustration with photography and a transition to new media. The third piece is an abstraction of a question mark created using aluminum and wire. In its standard position, the piece could be viewed as a question mark, but when pictured inverted, the sculpture could be perceived as an exclamation point, representing that I look forward to my future at Parsons, while exactly what the future holds is unknown.
