David Bynoe – Cedar Wings

27Mar10

David Bynoe‘s Cedar Wings are a beautiful example of a simple mechanism used to dramatic effect. These wings have a 9.5’ wingspan! Lovely.

The way these expand the reach of the body is something I would like to incorporate into my work. This was a great part of the discussion at my interim review–how can the body be expanded beyond its normal dimensions to heighten the awareness of certain parts of the body. It brings to mind the Oskar Schlemmer work I’ve been looking at for a couple of weeks (and recently posted here)…highlight the body. Now to incorporate movement. I don’t think I’m being coherent here, but lines of force are beginning to converge in my mind.

It’s Earth Hour tonight, so don’t forget to turn everything off and enjoy some candlelight from 8:30-9:30pm. If you have a view of the downtown skyline of Minneapolis, be sure to look to see if the skyscrapers are dark!
