Spirals started to become interesting when I managed to create one from a flat sheet of paper, through only folding, so I decided why not try another media, one that a computer wouldn’t ordinarily be able to use at all. Hence I used some oak hardwood, cut into around six centimetre strips to attach together into a spiral. The outcome, which whilst not the most aesthetically looking piece, moved the eye from one point to another without hesitation. My problem was that I knew little to nothing about sculptures, as proven by my fragile little wooden toy.
Within my research into sculptures I came up with two artsists whose work had connotations to my project; Tara Donovan and Jill Townsley. Tara Donovan is a sculptor born in 1969, and most commonly uses houshold objects into large scale installations, that have been said to have a life of their own. Here are the two I focused on; Papers plates, and Styrofoam cup cloud. Jill Townsley, whose work is usually huge in scale and ranges from paper to fabric to fishing wire, to create a varity of shapes and patterns, however most of her work has some form of fractal within it. I used her works at what level, all things remaining equal and Spoons. (I attempt something of the genre with the pages of a book, coiled and strung together at the core.)
They both use a wide varity of media however, fabric and paper are the most prodominant. This gave me the idea to include material into my project, even if it ended up lacking, the curiosity would be stated. I used some felt to create a simple cross fractal connected together with a blanket stitch. For an experimental piece it turned out well, so i went bigger. I used mesh and wire to create a tunnel that consisted of six hoops all linked together by the mesh; this would be my representation of the invisible connection between the two places that i could identify as luminal. A visible link for others to see and understand that when i say liminal i mean a place stranded between two others, a place that also made up the two seperate places it was trapped under, “betwix and between”.
