Plywood mock up

I have been diverted from marble for a time to try to erect a structure to help some clients visualise a possible sculpture. The proposed sculpture in marble is a twisting stacked form shape. The complete shape would be almost impossible to make in wood and so, after much cogitating, I have come up with a shorthand version. Hopefully this structure once installed in the clients landscape will give some idea as to how the proposed sculpture might look. I think that the scale and volume will certainly be made clear. The picture here shows the structure at night. I am projecting an image of the proposed carving onto the plywood. Only the right hand side could be transposed from the projection as the image distorted as you can see. The projector was precariously balanced on two tables on top of a neighbouring barn roof.
