Construction I

Construction I

857 sandstone building blocks
Black paper and white ink

96cm x 60cm x 44cm (sculpture)
110cm x 75cm (drawing)

(2014)

 

The work consists of 857 sandstone building blocks and a framed hand-drawn construction drawing.

The blocks have been cut and sanded into 14 different basic shapes, based on children's wooden toy blocks. These are built into a construction, based on the construction drawing on black paper.

The blocks are not affixed in any way, but placed on top of each other in a specific building order.
