About: Commissioned by a great distribution method to encourage collecting contemporary art, I was asked to make something in an edition of 50. Using my momentum from my series 'Seven Matriarchs' made a few months earlier, I returned to the concept of taking one sculpture and transforming it many times. In this updated version I allowed the transformation to develop over the period of 24 hours, documenting the process with my camera. I printed the 50 best moments for the series, and turned the entire process into a stop-motion animation. This was one of the most enjoyable pieces I have ever worked on and plan to return to this process in 2016.
This work was supported by a Project Sponsorship at the Pittsburgh Creative Center for Reuse, where all the materials, including the original trophy, came from.
