For my project, I’m developing a dynamic, illuminated divider wall for a theatre piece that I’m a part of. I’ve been fascinated by the fusion of organic materials and technology for a while, and I’ve done some pieces along these lines in the past:

For both these previous projects and the one I’m planning for class, my primary inspiration has come from nature itself- I like the organized chaos of thick forests and branch canopies, and I’ve seen other artists do incredible environmental art that explores similar themes, notably Patrick Dougherty:

and Andy Goldsworthy:

They both do amazing pieces that reflect the temporality of nature and try to make some sense of order from the wildness of natural materials.

I also love the way that light looks passing through branches, like in this piece by Hilden Diaz, which takes branch forms and encases a light to create a sculpture of shadows:
