I've been on a little bit of a sculpture kick recently and ReBalanced Arch is my most recent addition. The piece is a new take on the idea behind the sculpture Balanced Arch that I made in the spring of 2013. Balanced Arch was an interesting study, but its design was too busy to be any sort of finished piece. With ReBalanced Arch, I streamlined the design by simplifying the base into a rectangle and getting rid of the two points that the original Balanced Arch rested on. Instead, the arch just sits in two small grooves that don't do any actual supporting, but just keep the end points from sliding around. I also spent plenty of time sanding and tapering down the arch itself, in order to give it a more elegant, organic and finished feeling.
In my dream world, I would make a giant version of this sculpture and suspend a swing from the top of it. How awesome would it be to swing back and forth through the center of the arch? Since the contours created by the overlapping cables change with the viewer's perspective, you'd be sure to get some pretty crazy visuals.
