The three things we need to exist.
The fundamentals of life.
In this project we were to look into an ancient culture, and from this develop a set of three sculptures relating to shelter,water and food. The three sculptures were required to interlock in some way.
Looking into ancient Aztec art and patterns, I was fascinated by the geometric representations of nature. The geometric designs were creatively connected, making more designs on a larger scale, and inscribed into the stonework from which their shelters were constructed. The Aztecs developed their own version of the koru, or spiral, which was stylised into a square formation.
Cut and carved into my roof, water vessel and cooking platform, are patterns derived from a much more modern symbol of existence.
respect and identity
Does your left foot try and change your right foot?
They are very similar, yet they are also opposite.
If the left foot forced the right foot to be left,
would they work together?
If we respect our differences
we can walk forward
in a straight line
...its a question of balance...
