Sketchbook KARF Station 1

This is a sketchbook drawing from 2010 of one concept for Station 1 of the KARF installation. I look back at old sketchbooks and notes to refresh my ideas and sometimes solve problems I am up against. I like the spindly look of this station-how it has a slight unsteady cant. Nearly all of my sculpture has some part that juts out or leans away from the base. In the real world as I built this I had to center more of the weight over the casters on the bottom. It was that or actually having to deal with it falling over. I found a way to compensate for the teetering feeling I was after by crowding elements onto the upper section of the station, mounting them at slightly cockeyed angles, to get that feeling of precariousness I wanted.
