The title “wilderness” refers to the feeling one gets when letting the object engulf their field of vision and experience the intricacy of the many combined pieces. I want to evoke the feeling of getting lost amongst the trees of a mysterious and magical landscape.
This art piece is created with an abundance of sprues which - abandoned in the plastic manufacturing process. When I found this discarded material, I started to appreciate its original form and adapted my process to its own characteristics. I use my hands to give this manufactured material a new value, a new life. The sprues are embedded with led light strips and the whole structure is woven together with coloured acetate strips. The embedded lights allows the colours to illuminate the structure in dark.
