Impression

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

"Impression" is a life size, kinetic pin screen sculpture that inspires creativity and encourages interaction. The sculpture is a minimalist design that is engineered using a fulcrum to pivot the heavy steel screens and allow the pins to be reset in one simple movement. Low relief, 3-D impressions are created by pressing your image or shapes into 28,000 aluminum "pin" heads and 12" rods. Inspired by artist Ward Fleming's 1970 Pin screen toy and the multi-cultural joy of "playing" and creating art. At a very young age we are fascinated by leaving our personal impressions. We stamp colorful hand prints with finger paint, press them into cool plaster tiles and make snow angels. The artist invites you to act on curiosity, approach art with confidence, become apart of the sculpture and leave your own first impression. Share your photos on the Jacqueline Gilmore Fine Art Facebook page "Pin board" to view the thousands of impressions the art has, literally, made on people.
