Satch had several boxes of red vinyl records which we were to make into a canoe. We built a steel frame and attached the records to it with strong earth magnets. The magnets allowed us to remove the vinyl for shipping and storage, and also gave us the freedom to reposition them as we needed.
The steel structure was TIG welded upside down
We were working in the beautiful Liberty Arts open air foundry in Durham NC.
It was great working with Satch. He played amazing melodies on his flute while we were welding. He is an accomplished musician as well as a visual artist.
The finished sculpture ready to be boxed up and taken to the Nasher. The steel frame comes apart in three sections.
