Making this project has given me so much respect for sculptors; the time and patience requared is physically and mentally exhusting.
Arashiyama's bamboo forest.
Dismantling the ice-cube holder...ice is difficult to work with yet very rewarding.
Again...photographing a sculpture which stands on ice, is ridiculously tricky (It can't melt! arrggghhhhh!!!) .
So thankful for my friends at the University (Yousuke Myoukai, Rie Okamoto, Tala) and Drew and Eriko Miller for helping with some emeargency translation, without them I wouldn't have been able to submit my sculpture for the '13th Oita Asian Sculpture Exhibition'. The timing was orchestrated... we managed to complete everything by the evening of the deadline day!
'Untitled', (volcanic rock and ice), 23cm x 30cm x 16cm.
I'm drawn towards the brief relationship of composure the two materials hold, wilst in there very nature untrue.
Very excited...I'm preparing prints for an upcoming exhibit at Kyoto Museum!!
Keep an eye out for more updates soon!
Any comment, share or like would be much appreciated!
