For this week i have developed a more functional bird sculpture and given more thought into deeper understanding behind the materials and symbolism.
I chose the bird sculpture to be my first experiement because I grew up with bird feeders and have always admired their beauty.
I found the process to be a learning curve, especially when trying to piece together my sculpture peices were unbalanced. Going forwards I need to use other weighted materials to balance out the piece and make it free standing, maybe layers of card for the feet or maybe find something ot hold it down such as pins or weights.
For our worshop exploring the theme of human flow, i have been investigating artists responces to the term displacement, the powerpoint I have put together looks at the work Curtains of hope.
