Artsy Room Divider

So, it seems, at least for now, that I’m the keeper of this cool work of art by the award winning fine artist Retha Ferguson. It’s about 150cm wide, 80 cm high, on a stand that makes the total work about 1.8m high. Right now it’s serving time as a room divider until its creator comes and saves it from such a dreary fate.

The work is made of wood, perspex, rope and… well… black stuff, and is translucent, so I decided to photograph it with a back light. After lots of experimentation with various light modifiers, I decided a shoot-through white umbrella gave the best looking shadows for the strings in the top image.

Here is a full view of the work.
