The Exhibition

The reception for the exhibition went well! It was a great experience, and I'd love to do more installations in the future. I think I'll try and do some more 3D environments on a smaller scale for now. (Anyone remember making shoebox dioramas in elementary school?)

Here are a few pictures of other student works in the show. My self portait is in there too!

Flying Rabbit!

I'm working on a project for my sculpture class which will include 3 of these flying rabbits. The wings are made out of Thomas Guide pages, bamboo skewers, wire, masking tape, and glue. The rabbit is made out of canvas material, buttons, and thread. Yay, flying bunnies!!

The rabbits will be displayed at the SD City College show room. (I can't remember the dates, but I'll update this post when I find out.) It's supposed to be a installation piece, which means I have to still think of a background. I'm thinking I might blow up images of Thomas Guide maps and paste them onto the walls. The theme is escape/travel/freedom.
