JAMES HAYES : SCULPTURE IN CONTEXT : 2007
" SIERPINSKI'S GROWTH"
Sculpture in Context (group show), Dublin, Sept 6th - Oct 19th 2007

This work is an experimental piece which I created onsite over the space of two days. It is constructed of bamboo skewers held together with hot glue.

The design is based on a fractal named after Wacław Sierpiński who described it in 1915. Originally constructed as a curve, this is one of the basic examples of self-similar sets, i.e. it is a mathematically generated pattern that can be reproducible at any magnification or reduction.

I wanted to create a three dimensional drawing, lines floating in air. After this initial temporary piece, I would like the opportunity to recreate a similar work in more durable materials.
