Rattle, 2015-17

Sculpture / installation
18’ Halyard cotton rope
5300cm total rope extension, 20cm compression for each knot

Ongoing sequence of knots that through repetition turn into a volume. My inspiration was the rings from the rattle of the rattlesnakes but the result goes beyond my initial intentions. We can associate the knots with body parts or organic elements. I like the weight and the articulated behavior of the material.
