Urban Sculpture

I was asked to analize a Maud Gatewood painting of my choice. Then after careful observation, I noted that her work portrayed the design elements of: movement, rhythm, a-symmetry, emphases, light and shadow. At this point, I thought that my concept was "Rhythmic Delight"

I then created an organically shaped structure that would use natural elements such as wind to create sound. The organic form came for the some of the shapes found in the president Maud painting, while others were implemented in order to create movement in a solid structure. I was able to make a audio effect in my design with the use of wooden reeds that were placed on the exterior steel drum shell.
