This mixed media piece was created by constructing a copper frame and adding different elements that were made up of library cards. The larger elements have a wood base to give them the weight that is needed to balance the piece with the cards collaged on top and painted or stained using acrylic paint. The smaller, round elements were constructed only of library cards built in a circular pattern and were later spattered with acrylic paint. The middle element, which was created to add a sense of playfulness to the piece, was constructed by using a copper frame and adding fishing line and library cards to help add length to the piece and tie it all together. This work, and a few of my other works, was inspired by Alexander Calder’s mobiles and his many sculptural works.
