This is a site specific installation at a non-profit public exhibition space, Bradwolff Projects, Amsterdam. The piece was made on site over a two day period. It was part of a larger my solo exhibition of my there.
My assistant Mark Rupert, custom made sof fabric cylinder from glass cloth which locked into the ceiling. We applied resin as we raised it up and twisted it into place. The colors were discussed and planned before hand.
I work with light by using transparent materials which can be made to be clear or any other color. The material is soft during the creation, but it has great strength after it hardens--the forms it can take are endless. I work without molds which is unusual for these materials and give a life to a usually lifeless material.
