Surrounded by Art

Dawn Wohlford's avatar Dawn Wohlford

I created "She Was Happiest When Surrounded by Art" by connecting over 300 different slides of artwork with over 1300 steel rings. The piece is autobiographical because I work as an art director by day and an artist by night. In my free time, I like to visit art galleries, museums and studios, so I am truly happiest when surrounded by art. The piece was built upon a free standing mannequin and contains an LED light bar that is attached to the inner frame, illuminating the slides from the inside-out.
