Here I am working on one of my current projects. The process started out on paper after much research. After I decided on how I wanted the end result to turn out, I gathered the needed materials. Once I had those in place, I did a dry run, i.e., I assembled all the pieces on a flat service. This accomplished several things. The first, provided me with a visual on how the pieces would fit together; second, it provided a quasi-visual of the final assembled piece; and third, it tells me if I need to make adjustments, swap out components and lastly if I need additional components.
The slideshow below, shows me in the assembly (fabricating) process. Here I am using a mig welder to weld the steel parts together.
Can you tell what the final project will be? Not yet? Leave me your best guess in the comments section.
Stay tuned as the project takes shape...
As an artistic engineer, I want my creative spirit to inspire the viewer to think outside the box of their normal boundaries. I want viewers to interpret my artwork into whatever moves them beyond their normal boundaries to see what can be instead of just what is. I feel that abstract artwork does just that--move you beyond the normal. LJS
