‘Fractal Rendition Of Numerical Data’
(The Fractal Geometry of Data)
Produced on site at Skidaway State Park , Savannah, Georgia. Monday 10th November 2014
Initially we were attracted to explore and set up camp on Skidaway Island because of the Earth Works located there. These turned out to be part of a system of coastal fortifications built by slaves during the civil war.
The island was also used during prohibition where we found the remains of an old still in the magical swamped woods.
The surrounding nature of the barrier island itself overwhelmed the history and holds the key to this new work, which is an investigation of the similarities between natural and artificial structures.
These new sculptures can be seen as finished works but also as three dimensional sketches to be developed later, some of the ideas will be taken further once we return to our studios in New York.
Two versions of 'F.R.O.N.D' were produced (3D + 2.5D). All of the work produced on this tour will be available as a series of limited edition bronzes. Please contact us for further info.
Skidaway is one of many Barrier Islands off the coast of Savannah so there's more to explore before we hit the road to Jacksonville, Florida where we will be giving a public lecture at the University of North Florida on Thursday 13th Nov at 3pm.
The Fab Lab will be parked at the UNF Sculpture Studios for a few days so pop on by and say hi!
