Prism by: Olivia Johnston

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.

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.

  1. Hi Olivia, I really like the “Louvre influenced” structure you created! I think you did a great job with the precision of the wiring, and really like how each side is in opposition of the other; it must’ve taken a lot of time and patience to put this together; and how interesting that it’s a chandelier! Would love to see a picture when it’s “lit” 🙂 Congratulatulations Olivia! Love it!

  2. Olivia, I really enjoyed the fact that the wire is so straight. I know from experience, that it is very hard to do. I think it really made your piece spectacular. I also enjoyed the pictures you posted. I think that going outside of the box and creating the sky as your background was very clever. I think you did a very nice job in making you whole piece very symmetrical. Your post was a representation of gramatical perfection, over all fantastic job.


  3. I really like your project. I think the simplicity of your project makes it look really sharp. If you put one of the pictures of the Louvre it would have been better, so I can see what it looks like. Over all, It was one of my favorite projects, other then mine, of course.
