Sculptural work that often impresses me the most are those that use everyday, average materials that are not inherently beautiful. A good example is plain old scotch tape which is not typically seen as a sculptural material on its own however the character of the tape being clear, reflective and moldable lends well to building interesting shapes.
This video of a temporary installation I came across back in 2011 is stunning – the music, the way the sculpture is woven together, the lighting and shadows….
It’s like a beautiful web in a forgotten corner of the city.
This next video is interesting because, unlike the pure beauty of the one above (although still beautiful, especially with the light), you get a better feel for how the sculpture is created in a more structural sense.
