Title:


    Wall Sculpture with Postits

Exhibition:


Medium:


    CG-generated 2D image (3ds Max)

Size:


    42" x 32"

Category:



Artist Statement:


    This work combines and contrasts the highly architectural and sculp­tural materials of acrylic sheet and polished stainless steel with the ubiquitous, instantly disposable office Postlt note. Each red acrylic square holds a fresh, unmarked Postlt.

    The work forces viewers to re-address their views on tough, struc­tural materials and everyday, throw-away objects.


Technical Information:


    Unable to produce large-scale sculpture in real time, Ed Eaton uses 3ds Max to produce virtual pieces of sculpture that look real but are unaffected by irritating real-world influences such as gravity.

    Working in the CG world, complex pieces can be completed in a matter of hours, using any material, and at any scale.
