S Shaped Pink Rope. Follow Me
Rope of glass, which is a kind of a material impossibility.
Inspired by the Japanese bondage practice Shibari - amalgamating control and submission. The work is influenced by Jomon culture as well.
Ropes bear controversial meanings (i.e. violence and safety).
I want to investigate the concept of freedom and the conflict between extreme materialism and fragility which glass represents.
Technically I sculpted from real rope and burned it out to fill the mold with glass.
"Follow Me" started as a part of the installation I created for Mindcraft18 -Danish exhibition during Milano Design Week.
Work was shown in South Korea "Crafted Matter "at Cheongju Craft Biennale and Kunsthal Charlottenborg "The Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition 2020"
