Kari Reardon – Metalmatic

Welded Steel Hoops

This large, organic and fluid form was made from a huge industrial coil of steel. The coil was suspended downward and, as it moved and dropped, the artist adjusted the coils to the positions she wanted and then welded them together. Her goal was to take a hard man-made material and transform it into a soft billowing form that has a feeling of growth and movement.
