Living in a Marterial World: Questions

Does the form of the overall piece respond to or resonate with the objects chosen as modules?
            The spoons responded well with the overall form of the piece. The patterens I choose to create the piece worked out nicely.

Could the piece be made from another object as well, or is there a precise/nessasay correspondence between the objects and the structure?

            The piece could be made out of another object but it would have a different impact on the overall piece. For examples the spoons create certain patterns that no other object could create which were nessasary for the piece.

Explain any material difficulties in usage?

            The only material difficulties were making the spoons go in the diretion I wanted.
           
Meaningful discoveries?

            Don't force the spoons, just let them be spoons. It makes things smoother and usually turns out better in the end.

Process/Ambitiousness

Does the piece rise above the ordinary in terms of scale, materials or effort?

            The more spoons the piece had the better the piece came out. This casued the piece to be larger and more of an effort.

How did the piece change from initial mental imaginings to final piece?

            Because the spoons wanted to do their own thing, the piece altered from it's original mental image. Though this worked out in the end because the point of the piece was made.

Was the initial idea or final piece more ambitious? How so?

            The initial idea of the piece was at the sam ambition level. The original idea was to have the piece at least 5 feet tall with and openeing. The final piece is at ground level but has more creative additions put on than the original idea.

Craftsmanship

Is the way the piece put together helping the overall effect or distracting from it?

            The piece draws the viwers to the piece which is a plus since that I what I want the piece to do.

Form

What are the dominant formal elements visible in the work? Are these elements improtant to the piece? In what ways?

            The dominant formal elements in the piece are space and value. Space because there is space within the piece that allows views to see the inside of the piece. Value because of the number of spoons used to create the piece. I think it might cause the viewers to think about how many spoons went to make the piece.

What are the dominating principles visible or implied in the work? Explain.

            The dominating principles were repetion, rhythm and continuance. Repetition because the spoons repeat certain patterns within the piece. Rhythm because of the patterns within the piece. Continuance because the patterns continue within the piece.

Concept

Does piece relate to the source objects hisroty, function or purpose? If so, how?
           
            Not really, except showing that the spoons are a tool.

How does the presentation of the piece alter the veiwers understanding of the source object?

            The viewer might think of the spoons as play things instead of a tool. Which makes my laugh.

Presentation

Why here?
           
            I want the viewers to see the front rather than the back of the piece. In this piece the front is more important to view than the back.

What is the relationship of the work to the space?

            The piece appears to want to slip away  from its space. This is what I more or less want.

How do the surrounding elements impact the viewing and impression of the piece?

            Because of the piece the surrounding elements hardly impact the piece. The viewers are drawn more to the piece than the surrounding elements. 

Does the piece respond or ignore what is around it? How so?

            The piece ignores its surroundings as the piece as it appears to be crawling away from its surroundings.
