These pieces seek to reinterpret an archetype: the gift bow. A once ephemeral object is rendered permanent through material and scale. Substantial materials such as steel, copper, aluminum, and wood as well as a scale two to three times that of the archetype were implemented as a means of increasing the physical presence of the object. Patinas of rust and oxidation were applied to evoke a sense of permanence.
The Infinite Gift Bows function in relation to the objects they are placed upon. While a typical gift bow temporarily serves as a celebratory ornament on a wrapped package, the Infinite Gift Bow is an enduring sculpture perpetually accentuating another object.
