It has been a few months since the BEAR XL party has occurred but BEAR is still going strong.
I was asked to make a papier-mache modeled of the Aloicius sculpture that hangs in Munich During its Oktoberfest. My Original (hanging in the tent in the pic at the bottom) now hangs in the Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh PA.
The top picture is the second Aloicius, made of epoxy, foam and nylon. I was asked to construct this second Aloicius so that it would survive being passed down through the generations to come.

Bottom image is how the compartment was displayed during Protagonist/Antagonist. Viewers were encouraged to enter and explore. The living unit was achieved through condensing the floor plan of my one room apartment. An economical use of space was not my desire. I wanted to create a space that was on the verge of being too small yet livable. Through having all surfaces clad in masonite(with the exception of iconic forms defining the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom) I wanted the viewer to focus on their movement through space and consider their notions of home. Masonite, Plywood & Household Fixtures. 7'6"x7'6"x4'
Original version was going to have a 3-D cup within the space defined by the 2-D Imagery. I thought this was a bit cutesy so I got rid of the cup and allowed the cones to define space on their own.
