Reconstructed Torso

I did a video of one of my latest projects: Reconstructed Torso.

At one level I just like sculpting human figures and hammering metal, and finding beauty between ideal shapes and flawed surfaces. On another level this is about ruthlessly scrutinising and making conscious the ideals that we sacrifice ourselves for. Maybe to the point of reconstructing something less ideal but more real? It is life-sized made from individually forged pieces of sheet metal 1-3 mm thick.
