Traveling Sculpture

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Here are a few stop-motion studies for my Soft Sculpture project. I used four layers of felt and six sets of snaps. The piece can look, at times, like a clam, a stomach with esophagus, a vagina, a worm-like creature, and a flower.

The sculpture fans its edges, showing off. Then flattens out:

In this one, the sculpture scrunches up, then undoes itself and leaves the room:

The Tile Project

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

 

Our final selection…

After some awesome but complicated laser cutting…
some sculpting…
some oven baking…

some rough sanding down
some band-aids
…and creating the two molds.
It’s time to cast it…

a well deserved thumbs up!

A finished product!

Thank you.

Final project: Toy

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

1. Create the frame for the sculpey Y using wire.

2. Sculpt, bake, and sand sculpey “positive Y” for casting.

3.  When the Silputty mold cures, cut open the top 1/3.

4. Prepare the mold by coating the inside with wax and vaseline.

5. Pour silicone. Cast 1/2 of the complete Y.

6. Cut out a small hole on each tip of the legs and embed magnets.

7. Place the silicone Y back into the mold. Cover it with the top 1/3 of the mold and put tapes around. Pour silicone.

8-9. This is a flexible proto-type Y for the Y that could be laid flat, bent, or attached to other Ys to become larger sculpture.
