By Chai Salvi
The sculpture takes an inspiration from a tree ring. These rings depict the process of strengthening of wood against time. The sculpture tries to imitate this idea to engineer a curved piece of wood from a red cedar plank.
The process involved steam bending and cross lamination, testing its material properties to achieve a desired shape and strength.
I believe, the artfulness of the project lies in the process itself which was relevant to my interests.
