While working on this piece, I chose to investigate the principles of a pedestal that not only works as an object for support, but also as something that can be used as a support to make the piece itself stronger. I focused on this idea by building a structure that an organic shape could rest inside. As for the texture added to the organic shape, I chose to use moss. By using moss, a suggestive relationship between the pedestal and the object was created; a relationship that explores the push and pull between society and nature. The intent of this piece was to make something that could be light and airy, but also have a weight or connection that gravitate the piece down towards the earth. I created a whimsical sensation by using line as an element in my design (cutting strips of wood that reach up for the sky as well as hanging the piece from the ceiling) and the element of weight by using an earthy pallet in addition to placing the organic object on the surface of the pedestal instead of hanging it inside like I had originally intended.
