Hey guys, I haven't been posting here very often anymore but still am doing some things. This is my latest project that I completed the other day... no pictures of it on the wall yet (waiting to get proper screws tomorrow at the hardware store). Anyway, this one took quite a few hours to do and I learned a lot on the way! I finally getting a bit better with wood working and really like it - have a few more ideas in this direction :)

Hope you like it! It is about 50" x 33" - feels like it weighs about 20 pounds I would say. It was made out of pine and various wood stains (and a gloss clearcoat). The light it has is dimmable with a remote and also has silly strobing seizure programs - though the slow fade one is ok I guess... I also have a video of it also with that program on.

I think it's awesome! It works without the lights as well, has movement!

quite an unexpected treat
tricks and glue and nails
has an Escher-like effect
the mind is slower than the lights

In my experience I cannot recall anything like this
very very very good!

my critique is subjective because i prefer curves over angles and would have cut/sanded/curved all the angles, the outward pokey ones anyway.
perhaps a thought for the next one?

gotcha! yeah I think the next one won't be so "sharp"

The sharps give this a feeling of high speed action and excitement.

Rounding would give a gentler feeling, still active, quieter.

both good, different effects

Immediate impact! I like it. With all of the sharp angles it has a futurist vibe for me, but with the natural wood finishes it has another vibe too. And the first connection I got from it was graffiti tagging.

All in all a good contemporary mix of potential influences and interpretations. And strong craftsmanship too by what I can see in the pics. Well done. Will enjoy seeing more of this!

I just had a chance to view this on YouTube,,,
not a satisfying experience

Perhaps reshooting this once it is off the floor
and mounted on the wall will do it justice.
This YouTube exposure may bring you more clients
so it is essential to do it as professionally as you can.

I just bought a camera that has video capabilities
so I was watching to see what worked well
(room lights out with the art lights on and cycling)
and what didn't work
(too much of the background detracting-
and shooting angle did not flatter the work well)

but I still like this piece
and the video did enhance the experience

one of the most interesting things I have seen in a while.
why keep the shapes in the canvas?

Thanks for the additional input, and yeah you're right the video is quite bad haha, I will make another one sometime.

Thanks! Just did this one without any plan and it just evolved as in during the project. I have a few other ideas now that I plan to go with - a few will be a bit more daring than this one I think :D

Thank you :D
