Cardboard + Jello Sheet Projector
This was my final project in my sculpture class. It is based off of the concept of multiples. With multiples, a seemingly simple object can be transformed into a more complex piece by layering, stacking and arranging objects into a whole.
I really enjoyed building this piece. I chose cardboard as the main material for its versatility as a building material, and used hot glue for its quick-setting qualities. Beyond that, this piece only uses jello sheets, and a light bulb.
This piece worked in two separate parts. The first was the projector. I knew that for this piece, I wanted to work with light. At the back of the projector is a lightbulb. Slides of different shapes and colors can be slid into 5 different slots of the projector.
The jello slides then are projected in their specific arrangement onto the wall, creating a mosaic. This mosaic then passes through a final clear slide, with my name on it. To me, this piece represents the multiple parts that create my identity. The different colored slides are the different pieces of my person, which blend together, and are projected by who I am.
