06. Container as Art.woodworking

The objective of this project was to design a container and determine what it would hold. 

 

My goal was to create a container that was not static, but one that had flexibility, movement and variation. As each person encounters the container a new shape emerges. Completed in 2016.

As individual pieces are added and the size of the container grows the stability of the structure decreases.

Due to the various shapes created, the contents of the container needed to be a lightweight, voluminous mass that would take on any form but provide structural support. 

 

I filled the container with different types of raw fibers including silk, alpaca, llama and wool.
