These were the two finished sculptural pieces from the 3D module that I had discussed in earlier posts. I started with the idea of contained energy by framing the original tetrahedron sculpture inside a square which was two triangles joined. In the poly board piece I developed this idea out into a circular form acting as the frame and by contrast allowing energy to flow. The two ideas were very much linked to geometry and the interrelationship of shapes. I viewed them not as separate entities but rather as parts of the other and I enjoyed working with that idea and developing my thoughts as the module developed.
I integrated these geometric relationships into ideas about energy and I used that as the basis for both pieces as I explained throughout my blog posts. I spent a lot of time working through ideas and refining the final piece so that it went beyond an purely geometric aesthetic.
