ILOVEWESTLEEDS: HOME TWEET HOME|
( 3D Art Direction Installation )
We were honoured and excited to be asked to take part in Home Tweet Home - an interactive art trail in Pudsey Park, Leeds.
Fifteen identical wooden bird boxes have been painted, decorated, pulled apart and played with by artists from near and far. Take a stroll in the sunshine around the paths and flowerbeds of Pudsey Park and seek out all the boxes.
Our box plays host to another life form entirely and questions — while we have just landed another rover on Mars to seek out new life, has life from Mars existed on earth already?
We first recreated the box with exact measurements in 3d software to allow us to model our 'nest' with the highest accuracy possible. The nest form was then translated in to a stacked form using specialist software before laser cutting all 160 individual layers in 3mm MDF. Once cut the nest was constructed by hand using various sized clamps, wood glue and screws. It truly was a labour of love.
