Proposal for Findlay Maket Art Competition

2013

Cincinnati, OH

The proposal is influenced by Alphonse Mucha’s lithographed posters that featured beautiful young women flooded with figuring threads of hair and flowers that transformed the Art Nouveau style. The hair of women was a central element to these ornamental posters that not only embellish the composition but also convey a sense beauty to communicate with the public. The dynamic form of the sculpture transforms the aesthetic threads to configure a networking structure in front of the Findlay Market to act as a canopy structure to accommodate the public for various events that take place.
