Gasp for Air

Gasp for Air
Photo Description:
Photo Description: I was inspired by the myth of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the Sun. The sculpture is made out of wires and newspaper, and covered in a layer of modroc. The skeleton is then finished in jeans, to represent youth and to give a modern view of Icarus.The idea of the skeleton represents death in a very soulful manner. The wings are made out of wire and cling film. Finally the sculpture is hung in a white frame, to represent the limits that dreams have. However Icarus's wing extend beyond the limits.This is the moment just before his wings melt because of the Sun. He's gasping for air.
