WOOD SHAPING SPACE : BODY EXTENTIONS

Whenever I think of the human body I see it as an adventure. I took this thought and incorporated it into my sculpture by creating a foot treehouse. In the beginning of my process, I had to see how could I create a standing tree house that also had elements that related to the body. Therefore, I came to the conclusion of making the base of each level of the house into a foot. I started off by tracing my foot and then adding different pieces to help give the sculpture some stability. I decided on picking a tree house because the body is an adventure that everyone has to explore in order to find out what lurks behind each corner. When I was a kid, I was very adventurous and always wanted to have a tree house. I took this memory and made a treehouse that reflected the body, in this case the foot. I chose using feet as my body part because your feet are what helps you go places and discover things.
