Duck Depth

concrete, brass, wood, mirrored acrylic

I am a firm believer in using unintended consequence to explore perspective.  This goes against everything I was taught as a mechanical engineer.  However, there is great beauty and delight found in the unexpected. I want to offer the viewer a playful manifestation of a vision that began simply as an obsession with organic creation and replication: a periscope that looks down at ducks that don’t float. The reversal offers a perspective through which to view a single golden duck surrounded by its concrete counterparts.  Often I feel lost in my own thoughts and overwhelmed with possibility but being physical with the material unlocks my creativity and unexpectedly makes me smile.

Below is a time lapse about the construction and casting process.
