Something about the way you bend and twist wire, it feels like playing with a malleable form of stress. I knew when I first began using it, that I wanted to implement this to create a human form crumpled and heart broken from grief. To actually find reference for the amount of emotion I wanted to shine through my piece, I instructed a friend into a curled ball on the floor and proceeded to take videos and photos at every angle. After that, it was a matter of warping aluminum wire to my will with a combination of wire cutters, pliers, and my own hands.
