Useful to "useless"

Here's the result of my first sculpture assignment.

The useful object was an eggbeater. I was drawn to the negative space that the blades created. A beautiful cone-like space. I was also taken with the implied motion of the blades and decided that movement would also be a main feature of the sculpture. As I was building the piece, a few suggestions were made from my profs that this could take on an organic feel and that it would be much more interesting to vary the repeating blades instead of making them uniform.
A few different things come to mind: fish gills, cello, sound waves, tendrils . . .
I can't wait to see what our next assignment is :)
