Goats in the Sky.

Goats in the Sky.

This piece involves an imaginative species of a goat and its kin hiking up a mountain. The dialogue between the goats represents the transformation one goes through as they age. The mountain is modeled after Mount Matterhorn. The proportion of the goats to the mountain is distorted to emphasize their existence.

The process of creating this piece was extraordinarily tedious. I hot glue gunned hundreds of tiny scraps of cardboard together to shape the foundation of the mountain. I then used long strips of cardboard to form planes, valleys, and peaks. After that, I wrinkled paper towels and soaked them in a mixture of glue and water, and slapped these pieces on top of the cardboard to form texture in the mountain. Spray paint and acrylic was used for color. The goats are made of clay, and their fur is painted with acrylic.
