Chopper - My sculpture is mainly composed of air. I use bits of wire to draw my audience's attention to the air... minimal visual cues to assist the mind when defining space or enclosing volume. Sometimes no more than a simple gesture, my work can consist of a strand or two. Or, it might be a highly detailed study consisting of many pieces of wire.
I find the shadows cast by each of these 3-d sketches fascinating. I use two or three halogen spotlights to cast a variety of perspectives as I work. The shadows act as a 2-d reference plane and help my mind make the leap from sketching a picture on a flat surface with a line of ink to sketching a hologram in space with a line of steel or bronze. I expect an end result that works perfectly from any viewpoint, from 360 degrees
