Wire bones, Burlap Flesh: Fulfilling a Sculptors soul with AI

My childhood obsession with sculpture began with the humblest of materials. Chicken wire formed the skeleton, burlap the flesh, as I wove and twisted these everyday items into figures and forms.

There was a raw beauty in using non-traditional materials, a dialogue between the utilitarian and the artistic that fascinated me. These sculptures, towering and fantastical, were my first foray into the world of immersive art, where the physical presence of a piece could envelop you, transport you.

As time went on, film and technology beckoned with their own siren songs. Here was a medium that could also envelop, that could tell stories and conjure characters with a flicker of light and shadow. Yet, my first love for sculpture never waned—it evolved. These wire horses are a testament to that enduring passion, a bridge between the tactile art of my youth and the digital landscapes I navigate today.

Crafting these equine forms from wires and electrical pieces is more than an artistic endeavor; it’s a reconnection to the tactile joy of my early creations, now interwoven with the cinematic storytelling that captivates me. They stand as monuments to imagination, less time-consuming perhaps than the sculptures of yore, but no less impactful. In a museum space, they become silent narrators of a story that begins with a child’s hands shaping wire and ends in a world where art and technology dance in endless possibility.
