Saxony Melbourne

August 19, 2010

Some shots of an installation I created for Saxony Melbourne.
It will be in place outside the store in Melbourne Central for the next few months (AUG – OCT 2010).

I was asked to  create artworks in response to the quote:
“The shadow is the seat of creativity”Carl Jung

Above: ‘The Maze’ – I love this one! I need to get more shots of it to show it off at its best however. Suffice to say my mind got lost in there while I was constructing this little beauty – And in another plinth the ‘shadow’ of previous project >>> Below: Putting The Crystals together. I had to fly the work down flat and construct most of it on site.

Above: Another simplified ‘Maze’ of sorts. A study in volume and shape really. >>> Below: The Crystals from the cave of the mind.

The works above and below were experiments in folding one piece of paper to create volume and shadow. I mounted the folded pieces onto old glass chemistry rods I found in a dusty junk shop. They are simple sculptures from a simple idea – but I’m enjoying exploring the idea of creating with just one piece of paper.
