Stage2

Summary

Various eroded form were explored for use within the rebirth theme. Key characteristics necessary for the successful eroded form of rebirth include:

present the fragility of life

present the moment of transformation between life and new life

present  a snapshot of the aging process   

Focus was placed on outlining three experiments utilizing : regular, organic form and thickness of 2015-05-22 15.56.53 2015-05-22 16.13.44 2015-05-22 17.29.56 2015-06-03 14.34.59

i try to imitate the eroded antler. the eroded antler gives audience a feeling that life is decaying. At the beginning, I strip the surface texture of antler, and then to drill different shape of hole. with the development of project, the texture and original shape of antler has been kept because the natural shape is more dynamic and elegant.2015-04-28 11.41.12 2015-04-28 11.41.15 2015-05-05 19.00.22 2015-05-14 10.09.19 2015-05-20 13.02.14 2015-05-20 13.02.26 2015-05-26 11.36.44 2015-05-26 11.37.21 2015-05-26 11.37.28

Description

The exhibition title, W(E)AVE, suggests the shared concerns that both artists explore in their work. Elana Herzog’s primary focus rests on the deconstruction of woven fabrics, such as found bedspreads and carpet, while Michael Schumacher’s dedication is to literally weaving together discrete audio events, comprised of sound waves, in order to emphasize the space in which they are presented.

Analysis

I think the resulting environment created by Herzog and Schumacher will induce both a visceral and thoughtful response from the viewer/listener, where sound plays off visual pattern and materiality merges with the ethereal. The natural texture give me a feeling of melody and decaying.

Technique&material

Schumacher incorporated elements from these sounds with synthesized sounds, such as sine tones, and more traditional instrumentation, including piano, cello, and violin. Processed in his computer using Max/MSP software, the sound was organized into eleven discrete channels, in what Schumacher describes as a grid metaphor. Presented on eleven speakers dispersed throughout the space, the composition will evoke a “grid” or weave of audio experience unfolding through time.08_1 08_02 08_03 08_04 08_05 08_06 08_07 mjs1

Nate by Lisa Berkert Wallard is a cabinet that looks like it was slowly eroded with time.

From the designer:

“More often than not, the idea process required to create something defines its purpose and character more than its appearance. Like the idea of reincarnation, the creative process is a journey where ideas take different forms. It is the story of how our creations come to life and how they affect – and are affected by – their environment.”

Analysis

In this stage, as the development of projects, my works are drilling and making eroded antler through using different parts of the antler and skull of deer to create , in order to explore the concept of repeated cycles of life and death.

I was inspired by Monika and Tokushige Hideki, they use specific symbol to present life cycling,such as wheel and flowers. Compared with my project, I prefer to choose eroded hole to tell people the process of transformation of life. Because eroded processing means the end of life and the start of new life-form. I also want to pursue the new life-form after life die. However, they inspired me to break the original form of skeleton.

Evaluaton

Through a series of experiments about eroded form, I think the eroded feeling is a very clear form to express the transformation and fragility of life. I interpret my concept in a poetic way, I really feel dying figures are meditative or weak, I can see the weak life and a new life coming.

Description

Most of her works are using different parts of the human skeleton and sculptures through a large number of alternative forms of repetition to create , in order to explore the concept of repeated cycles of life and death.

Analysis

The most impressive is her work ” wheel of life ” in this piece to form the hip as the center of the fan -shaped disc , I can see 58 repeating legs and feet are arranged round like, close to the ground bent legs showing a state that looks like a never-ending cycle of moving forward . These bizarre sculptures a creepy look , I find an unusual beauty when I look closely.6 7 23 32 33 51 221 hrudnc3adk img_8377 img_8386

Description

The process of transforming the deceased rodents into intricate floral artworks is not for the weak-stomached. Hideki must freeze his mice before picking out their bones and using the remains as fragile building blocks for his flowers, collectively known as “Honebana.” He quickly photographs his constructed masterpieces and then smashes the sculptures, ending the delicate art ritual by burying the bones in the ground.

Analysis

While I see Hideki’s project might seem morose at first. I think his flowers are meant to reflect on the momentary nature of beauty; drawing attention to the fact that most creatures, both exquisite and repulsive, will reach their demise. In an email to The Huffington Post, the artist simply stated, “I hope that my artwork, Honebana, is spread all over the world.”1 8 article-2345016-1A6A362D000005DC-433_634x601 honebana_100101-1-3A_1500 honebana_120823-2-3_1500 honebana_120824-1-3_1800 honebana_sh_3_8011059 o-TOKUSHIGE-HIDEKI-570 Screen Shot 2013-07-31 at 16.12.49
