Louise Bourgeois used knotting in both her two dimensional and three dimensional work

Philippe Petit: An interesting take on ropes and comfort

Reference,Uncategorized — Sam Ticknor @ 12:23 pm

This is Philippe Petit, a french high-wire artist. He made a famous traversal of the twin towers on tightrope in 1974. I think many parts of this performance apply to our current assignment on ‘comfort’. It also brings up a distinction between performance and performance art. How would you categorize Petit? An artist or a showman?

There was also an academy award winning documentary on Petit, “Man on Wire”:


Pins & Thread

Artists,Knot making,Reference,Technique — Jean Kwon @ 12:06 pm

Since this week is about knot making, I thought it would be nice to share an artist who works with pins and threads, Debbie Smith. Her work is entirely made up of these two materials, creating a big-scale scenery. The treatment and exhibition of the media change our perception of the materials as more artful forms.

Assignment 1: Progress

Assignment,Submission — Isabelle Jiang @ 5:04 pm

The concept behind my first project was to illustrate in a non literal sense the progression an animal makes from living organism to edible, and the fact that the essential identity of the animal flesh does not change even though the name transforms. The tessellated origami form  was used to convey a sense of structural soundness, essentially creating an atmospheric “world”, a representation of the throat through which the animal, in the form of meat, passes through.

Assignment 1: Art of Paper Folding

Assignment,Folding,Submission — Jean Kwon @ 4:05 pm

Here are images of the process and the outcome of my experimentation for this assignment. I was really inspired by Richard Sweeney‘s studies on paper folding. There was this certain complexity in areas that somehow expressed simplicity and elegance in its complete form. I thought this came for the repetition of accurate folds that lead for the paper to transform into a very dimensional form. I started from a small piece of paper and created simple folds. From that I tried some complex folds. Then I worked with bigger sheets of paper and created multiple folds. This lead to me create a sculptural piece, which somewhat resembled Sweeney’s works.

Another artist for inspiration

Artists,Reference — lindsay cavallo @ 3:14 pm

Stumbled upon the work of Tara Donovan while working on my project.  Really got me thinking about medium and how different materials can have different connotations.
