a - level sculpture
from 2011-13 I studied sculpture at wyggeston+queen elizabeth 1st college, leicester. the above images are taken from my final project, exhibited at gallery 12 in june 2013. it explored popular conceptions of mazes, in particular ideas of centres and edges. this work was made by suspending laser cut paper (a fun technical challenge. often caught fire.) from a welded frame, surrounding a lightbulb. the frame offsets each hung sheet to allow different amounts of light to pass through.
