Thesis: A tree house


Twisting and maze like patterns attributed to roots and trees using laboratory pieces. A garden of ice that comes together through assemblage and ready-made pieces thrown into a natural context, when they are commonly attributed to production techniques. Do these similar organic, yet recognizable shapes provide the same psychological benefits as nature? Are we inclined to experience these forms and sculptures with all five of our senses? Does the sense of touch detour a sense of safety? Does the materiality of the glass itself cause sense of danger? Or do the feelings of transparency and clarity reflect the bare nakedness of the biomimicry systems so present in our surroundings that we are unaware of?
