Throwaway Sculpture – A Question
Posted by rachelcreative on April 21, 2008
So I have this idea for a piece of sculpture which I’ve been formulating for a while now.
The piece would be large – too large for me to store or to display in my home. At least 2 foot high and wide. Even if someone loved it and wanted to take it off my hands it’s still going to be too large to mail to anyone (lightweight but bulky). It would also be a nightmare to dust and keep clean. Do most people consider the dusting when they acquire art I wonder?
Plus I don’t even know if the idea I have will work. I’ve had the concept since last year but the details of the execution are a little sketchy. It’s something totally new for me but it has great personal meaning to me.
I could scale it down and make a number os smaller versions but it won’t have the same effect and I’m loathed to compromise in a way that lessens the effect.
So … do I spend precious time and energy trying to create a piece of sculpture which may or may not suceed and if it does work I can only photograph to share it with you all here and then probably have to trash it and throw it away?
