I was the selected artist in a contest run by TalentHouse for creating a totem structure for a music festival, TomorrowWorld, in September of 2015. My submission and more details can be seen here on this link:
I wanted the structure to represent your own key to happiness, going along with the theme of TomorrowWorld that year and being inspired from their ticket box. It was designed on Adobe Illustrator for the laser cutter and the materials were laser cut by SBC laser located in Miami.
I created a series of large wooden and metal gears that would stand as an 8′ x 7′ structure using a series of large wooden stakes as bases. Unfortunately, due to the extremely rainy and muddy weather and some problems with the TomorrowWorld team they were unable to install and set up the structure in its final form as intended. Pictures of the final gears can be seen below.
