dc.description.abstract Energy, force, matter and volume are fundamental characteristics of the universe. These defining characteristics exist in all scales and can be found throughout space. My work considers the actions and reactions of forces and how movements are challenged by various energies. My creative investigations began by looking at the world in its entirety and considering both natural and man-made forces. I approached the work with the intent to alter what we recognize as structure and strength, and to act upon it, to challenge its integrity and create a progression of an implied action. Influenced by pioneers in the photographic capture of movement, my art considers the interactions between acting forces and capturing moments in time to suggest movement. The use of a progression formed by multiples became vital to how I view and understand the forces that shape my work. Utilizing the idea of stop action photography became necessary in depicting a moment in time. As my art continued to develop, the idea of multiples remained relevant. My art was usurped by ideas of volume and space and an urge to depict larger theoretical spaces thus putting more emphasis on the feeling or essence of a moment in time and space. Out of a need for my sculptural forms to feel less orchestrated and more random and natural, I became less interested in a single implied action and focused more on the idea of acting forces that continually challenge the matter they come in contact with. The physical work was in a state of flux and my approach to the creative process seemed to follow a very direct path. Shaping the art with the same mindset as the conceptual ideas behind it, meant working with less control but maximum applied force. This investigation will further dissect the conceptual and physical evolution of the body of work that came to represent my thesis. Exploring the unseen forces that help to unite the universe and the change in my approach towards shaping the physical work. en_US
