Viewing single post of blog Joys of using temporary studio space

Having cleared the 5mX5m floor space, I’ve made room for the 9m wire mesh roll to dictate what happens next. It’s a combination of careful balancing & weighing the inherent tension within the wire mesh coil & unfurling it into the space. attempting to cover as much of the floor as it will allow. It develops into a game between myself & the material: unwinding, then snapping shut, uncurling into unanticipated shapes, before curling up again. My intention is not to impose a given shape onto the sculpture, or to use any more than the original materials available; 3 nails across the walls, the floor, the walls. I allow the wire mesh to settle with gravity & use its own spring tension
