Apollo Rising

The brother of Artemis
2014

Apollo sometimes took on the form of the crow. In Greek myths, he is the brother of his twin sister Artemis. The crow in this artwork is abstract, the elements of wings a beak and feet can still be recognised though far removed from a typical crow form it still retains its essence . The sculpture seems to possess great mass, yet it is delicately poised on points, as if at any moment it will take-off.  The original shape starts from a regular polygon but has been vastly deformed. 3D software was used contributing to the displacement of points within its form by using an inbuilt random algorithm that Tweaked variables until a suitable shape that satisfied the impression of a crow.
