Art 221: Project 01

Our first project is to create an artwork out of a natural material without the aid of power tools. The goal is to develop a sensibility of the limits of a material. Mixed media is allowed.
I wanted to create my project using materials that were on hand and easily accessible: beach pebbles. After several prototypes, the idea to capture the sound pebbles make on the beach when the waves wash them in and out led to a few dead ends. These situations always involved having to reset the sculpture which doesn't really fit. I thought I'd try to capture it visually instead through light, shadow, and negative space.
Still trying to capture the sound, but lead to below.

Idea is out there for feedback, we'll see how it goes ;)
