The premise is pretty simple. As you may know I am a big fan of flora that re-takes architecture (think of the old roller coaster at coney island covered in vines), and with this project I wanted to create very small and intimate pieces to sort of counteract the hugeness of the space.
I did a little research on the area and found out about all these different companies that were creating down in the Dumbo area, coffee, corrugated cardboard (invented in Dumbo), pasta, spices, bottlecaps, licorice, etc. I wanted to use these materials for the project, so here's what I came up with (don't know how well it will translate in small images, the big ones looked awesome to me!)
I had also planned to do licorice stalactites, but ran out of time, will try and get those included if and when...
So theres more art that I have made that doesn't exist. I think I have done about a dozen or so proposals that have not come to fruition. Maybe I will figure out a way to post those. Anyone have any thoughts on whether or not to include images from proposals in slide submissions?
