Protean (A Resolution), 2022
Silicone, pigment, water-cut copper, copper vinyl, wood, copper rod, copper ferrules, steel wire, hooks
These sculptures are made by casting water-cut copper within translucent silicone. As you move around them their opacity shifts, slowly revealing the copper inside.
The material combination gives them strength and flexibility. Cast flat, they are formed through a process of bending. Each sculpture can be endlessly shaped and doesn’t have a fixed final form.
They are installed in a copper walkway. As the viewer walks towards them, vibrations from footsteps cause the sculptures to quiver.
