Orbit

Just completed last night. The shell of half a sphere, made of Mohair fibers, 42cm diameter.

Dancing up and down, between ceiling and floor - strung, crocheted and sewn with nylon thread.

And it's full moon today.

PS: Orbit is now part of a private collection.

Sketches


1. co-ordinates
2. static
3. spiraling
Patterns of dots in a circle - with a sphere in mind. The co-ordinates (from H to B, see post 30 April) may have left their traces in these drawings.

4. sunflower seeds

The first sketch 'Co-ordinates' merged into a drawing based on circles which is more static (2.). This turned into a spiraling (3.) version.

The resulting design recalls the pattern found in fir cones and sunflowers (4.).

The aim is again to transform from second into the third dimension...

Walking

Finds during the first few days, all within about 15 minutes walk from my current dwelling:

West:

Having said that there isn't much green near my doorstep I 'found' this piece of landscape not far from my current home:
Ploetzensee, a lake fed by groundwater in the middle of a huge green park, or rather three large parks.


South:

Lady with a hat peers over the trees into a street further south from here.




East:

Galerie Max Hetzler resides high up on the forth floor of the 'Osramhoefe'. A huge space entirely lit by daylight.
Work by Tony Ziegler.

Some more pics here.
