Convolution

Eryn Baker Bickerstaff's avatar Eryn Baker Bickerstaff

con·vo·lu·tion - a coil or twist, especially one of many. A quilled paper sculpture installation encouraging mindfulness by slowly discovering how perspective, light, and shadow change how the piece is interpreted. Exploring gradients, scale, hidden patterns and perspective, Convolution is made out of dual-sided colored paper. White sheets of paper are measured, painted with a tempera paint wash, ironed flat, cut into strips, rolled into coils, pinched into teardrops, and assembled into the final, organic piece. This work of art contains over 14,875 individually made coils and took over 220 hours to complete.
