This is just a sketch model at the moment, rendered larger than life. I might attempt a life size version in clay next. I think it needs hand made surfaces and edges to keep the human qualities. Also the physical joining of the parts will add to the composition.
Jane and I exhibited together at the Pink Cabbage for the first time, and invited Laurie (Jane’s brother) to be the guest artist. Here are some photos for anyone who missed it.
Renderings of three dimensional forms that I am exploring through computer modelling and 3D printing.
An exploratory project using a contortionist as a model. It went through various iterations in digital form. I attempted a life sized caged figure but I felt the cage dominated the figure and so just exhibited the life size figure. I may revisit the subject but tackle it in a slightly different way.
These figures were digitally modelled without any scanning, but they did use posable digital mannequins. This approach sounds easy but is actually quite complicated. It lacks the finesse of actual life observations but was an interesting way to work. probably most suited to creating armatures for more detailed modelling.
