Environmental Work

Starting from a small clay model I work various ideas in the computer. The process of the sculpture supports the concept with the material and method as a part of the final piece.

FACTORY
SCULPTURE : MARTIN CHRISTENSEN

 

 

The concept of emergence was the iconic symbol I wanted. There were some supporting themes represented by everyday symbols such as the key and the eternal. The spiral has been a theme I have used in my sculpture over the years, this seemed to be a good place to use it. This time in the context of growth and awareness. The scientific DNA reference is evident and supportive of the concepts represented . The permanent material as in the granite, formed by volcanic fusion of quarts and feldspar.
