Repetition

The cardboard sculpture assignment given was reminiscent of 3D-Design for me, both for its rudimentary materials and for the fact that I am bad at sculpting. With these in mind, I dove right into the project with time and objective in mind. In respect to basic foundations studios, I decided to go with the theme of repetition, a principle of art.

This was completed by cutting up pieces of cardboard into uniformly-sized squares (that then began to include different-sized squares as well) and cutting slits into the sides of them. The squares were then configured together by using the slits to interlock them. As the pieces were imperfect and made for unequal distribution of weight, the sculpture had a fluidity to it that was flexible when moved and made for a varied, almost crystalline-like structure. Through this method, the sculpture could essentially go on and on by adding more pieces.
