After working through my concepts and all those physical iterations of it I backtracked to my workbook to get a hold on the concept more firmly. The missing link, it seems, between the organic association I once had with the object and the lack of recognition of that in the different trials was the presence of The Multiple. The multiple is key to the organic reading I feel, growth will become more apparent when there is a unit that can repeat. Growth leads to life force, imaginative animation of movement and a creature. So down came those towers and painstaking permanent separation of each spring brought me to laborious:
Put spring down
Step up onto table
Put new spring down
My own artistic step class of sorts.
The end object though isn’t doing justice to my motives… Solution on its way!
