This exploration began with a first year sculpture assignment where I was asked to create something from 11 pounds of a repetitive object. At the same time in my Creative Process class, I was asked to show value from waste products and to effectively communicate my personal solution; I decided to cross-pollinate the two. I coupled sculpture with photography and communication design to express my final piece.
So how did I do it? I approached local electronics stores for outdated software CD’s & DVD’s which they readily donated. My first renditions were heavy and layered to reflect the magnitute of the waste created by this consumable media. My last rendition (the violin) embodied the preciousness of value reinvested when I realized that all-in-all, I had re-shaped about 25lbs of waste material.
