Newest art obsession

Tara Donovan is amazing. And not just because she won a 2008 McArthur genius grant. She takes the ordinary (styrofoam cups, plastic straws, pins, etc) and creates wonderfully organic sculpture. Taking something that is so manufactured and utilitarian and making it into something that breathes and lives on it's own is astounding.

She was the inspiration for my very amateurish cups sculpture.

I'll get there one day...

Awesome pictures, Jake. I like your cup sculpture.

Thanks. Although it ain't gonna be winning me no McArthur genius grant.

Oh FYI, when using hot glue, less is more. Otherwise you could end up blistering the ends of 3 of your fingers! Just a little heads up.
