(Another New Studio)
I made myself a workbench, a little lower than the display bench, and began to make sculpture based on the lemniscate wave developments. The bench is shown fully in the second image.
The view of the studio was taken at the end of the day on the 8th June .
I spent time thinking about the small wave print below and decided to make one of the circles into a sphere and to make the brown paper line widen over its length.
Lemniscate_cc_wave is the basis of this sculpture, the others can be seen here.
At the end of the day on the Day on the 9th June you can see I’ve begun to surface the big zero and the brown paper line and I have the foundation of the spherical form on the display bench waiting to be worked over.
I took a very dark photograph on the 8th, that turned out like this with Photoshop automatic tone, colour and contrast.
After the weekend I finished covering the two parts of the lemn_wave. The sphere was a problem and I couldn’t get it to work as I wanted so I had two frustrating days.
You can see one of my attempts here. I was also starting to think about the arrangement of the parts and how they might stay in place.
Given the drying time for glues when the parts were being finished I also went back to the redfilms and hung the circles again.
The redfilms are a found response to climate change, a machine made version of a burning garden with everthing carrying on as normal. It is presented as a double video projection with a fifty percent overlap and the videos starting at different times so that the film changes with each viewing. The films can be viewed on Vimeo.
At the last I decided to use the sections I removed from the ‘o’ to make a spherical shape by crossing the two circles and letting that serve as the form.
I think it works.
I also had a go at a drawing while I was thinking about the arrangement of forms.
