My Favorite Thing

Travis Emmen's avatar Travis Emmen

"My Favorite Thing" is a wire sculpture of a Boxer dog chasing a ball. It is constructed from nearly a mile of 12 gauge wire that I spun to mimic barbwire. This has been a fun project to create because it brought out the playful personality of a dog. I have named the sculpture "My Favorite Thing" because every time I see a dog playing with a ball, I hear them in my head saying in a goobery voice, "my favorite thing," and it makes me laugh. So I wanted to create that feeling in this sculpture.
