Art work book turned into blog

Since i haven't blogged in like forever i decided to put  in my Art work book gibberish down. Sorry if it doesn't make any sense. 

I've been working on these sculptures on like forever.... maybe 4 months now. There are 2 sculptures and this art work have part A and part B. 

The sculptures.  Topic: culture
  •  cultural sculpture 1 -- Part A & Part B
  • cultural sculpture 2 -- Part A & Part B
Part A:  The sculptures

Sculpture 1 is of a hippie. As hippies have been the base of many other sub-cultures. It is the influence for many of the teen spirits, influencing the Beat Generation and many other revolutions and liberations. 

Sculpture 2 is a simple figure listening to headphones. It is the general musical influence that through time has created many genres that are present today.

Part B:  Picture silhouette -- Created with approximately 20-30 small photos each. The photos will make a silhouette of the sculptures.
