So far, I’ve acquired the set of materials which will make up the main elements of my sculpture.
Note that they’re all hang-able items, which will probably be useful when building the final object, since the overall layout will involve branches, from which the objects will be suspended.
I also have two fans and a pile of lucky money envelopes, along with some red string to suspend them.
As for the prototype, I wasn’t able to acquire any kind of base materials, so I hung the objects I could from my coat-rack, in what ended up being a fairly good approximation for what I’d want my final design to emulate.
Of course the extensions would be longer, and less vertically spaced, with more branches extending from the top rather than along the sides. Again, I’m still basing my artifact on the work of Alexander Calder.
