About The Laocoonic Labyrinth Sculpture Series . . . [ show / hide ]

Laocoonic Labyrinth takes inspiration from Virgil's Aeneid and the Hellenistic sculpture of Laocoon and the serpent. The sculpture is maquette size in scale and is formed from deconstructed chain, reconstructed through welding to form a serpentine structure. “Taking a line for a walk” the form spirals around itself. The material is industrially made, yet through deconstruction the sculpture paradoxically becomes organic in form, therefore correlating to the inspiration.

Eightfold II is a larger version of Laocoonic Labyrinth, the method of construction is the same but the title is derived from an 8th century Japanese poem. Connectivity I and II are idea maquettes. The first uses the same methodology to form a relief; the second makes a line in space where the start and termination are the same, therefore creating a continuous line. The title is derived from graph theory, the interconnections of systems used to evaluate data.
