Art Description

Sculpture: playdough, Metal, Found Objects on Steel.

(the endeavour of stuff on a frame)

Ingredients: A found metal pallet (137x82x68cm), handmade playdough, one person, three hours. This video documents the performance making this sculpture. This three hour piece is condensed down to 4 seconds in this video.


Commission proposal: This piece would involve an initial three hour work in which I would physically push dough through a metal pallet (as shown in the video). Following this, the materials will remain in the space, and the sculpture will continue to perform as the dough crystallises in reaction to the air in the space.
