I began with a large, sculptural element. I wanted to maintain the immediacy and sense of the line of a drawing. I found myself thinking beyond the object and dealing with the space in an experiential manner; fully exploring the space and stretching my material sense. Multiple ten-foot elements began to radiate from the piece. These elements reflected the sense of variation and movement in the music.
I also wanted to deal with a sense of time. I utilized the hourglass motif and proceeded to generate the foremost section of the piece, which dealt with the wall expanse and the floor space below. The central element shifts from form (sheet metal) to structure and back again. Both the internal and external have equal weight and importance. There is another important shift from the centralized, layered image, in which the form is primary, to the more open ended and spatial configuration of the furthermost section, in which form and space are given equal attention.
I chose to juxtapose highly complex sections with more minimal sections and treatments. The long elements in the back radiate and touch the wall at different places, giving a sense of wave-like motion and buoyancy as in animation drawings.
