For this project, I decided to create a piece out of wire that replicates the Louvre pyramid. However, I chose to make the pyramid taller rather than wider, and I chose have a different pattern where the windows would be.
We started this project by choosing a reference piece of architecture and creating a sketch of what we wanted our sculpture to look like. We then created the sculpture out of wire and attached a light bulb and turned it into a chandelier. Our projects then will be featured in a gallery show and a dance show.
If I were to recreate this project, I would make the pyramid wider like the actual pyramid rather than taller. I think a wider pyramid gives the piece more dimension. Also, I would also change the size of my pyramid. I think that if my piece were bigger it would allow me to add more intricate patterns to where the windows would be.
I think that I could have made my piece better by making the placement of the wire on the sides neater. The intervals between the wires could have been more precise to create a cleaner look. However, I think the overall look to my piece is very interesting and pleasing to the eye.
