sculpture is fun

"Sculpture is what you bump into when you're backing up to get a better view of a painting." i found that quote hilarious. i've never really done any sculptural things untill recently, and i really like it.

...but it can be tedius, just ask Tom Friedman. he's a well known (well known for a sculptor, anyway) artist that my 3d design professor went to school with. a woman i work with had mentioned him to me a couple of weeks ago, then brad (my teacher) told us about him and showed us some of his stuff.

this piece he showed us as kinda a guidline idea for our new project was a crapload of toothpicks. the point of this assignment is to illustrate motion (not actual movement).

He made a self portrait out of sugar cubes and connected them by licking them. and then promptly went into a diabetic coma (just kidding).

and this is a piece that i freakin love. guitarist made of tin foil (with a wooden frame):

random recommendation: aphex twin. find it. listen to it. love it.

very very cool stuff

if you want to hear Richard D. James' (aka Aphex Twin) most recent stuff, he has released a series of recordings called Analord under the name AFX. If you get a chance to visit me I can guarentee you'll leave with the full collection.
