I cast the most recent three faces into beeswax today. It’s been several weeks since I cast any new faces in beeswax, so it felt good to get back to making new pieces. My primary focus right now is to get all 50 beeswax casts finished, but at the back of my mind I’m still wondering exactly where these sculptures are going. I’m starting to think that these digital images that I’m making from these beeswax casts are simply “raw material” that I have yet to process into another form.
Perhaps there’s a whole other stage of manipulation beyond the digital images that I haven’t fully considered yet. I’m thinking this because so far, none of my experiments in terms of different formats (the lambda prints, digital projection) have clicked just yet. I have a feeling that there will be much more to come with these sculptures.
