Always in search of something detailed, something intricate I happened upon this, the Thread of Life. One thing I've been conscious of is the lack of much empty space which I find to be desirable when it feels "balanced" by the areas of intricacy. This is really (despite its being circular) a six "sided" figure, that is its symmetry is based on six identical patterns surrounding the same central pattern. So there are six naturally occurring "spaces" around the circumference of the central figure. My point is I am conscious that these space areas need to be accentuated, as well as any other space areas I can make by minimizing the thread and enlarging the space between the thread.
Here is the initial drawing on plaster begun on 1-6-10. It may be completed today.
Completed model 1/12/2010
