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.
