Dressage

2018

Three-dimensional grids and space-frames are 3D printed in silicone rubber. They are regular in structure and proportion, yet they deviate, sag, or vibrate, each in their own way. 

 

This sculptural series plays with the idea of structure by giving these rational forms plasticity and irregularity as allowed by a new fabrication technique. These forms embody a rational ideal and we expect these structures to have physical strength. These pieces playfully deconstruction those ideas. 

 

Via this series, I poke fun at that pesky fetish: Man sure loves a grid, but he cant have it as he wants it. Its not as structural as he thought.
