I decided to make a stop motion animation of my sculptural process. Here's just a peek.
Rough Cut- it still needs audio and color correction
This will be continued through the entirety of this sculpture's process.

THE REAL PROCESS:
Leaning tower of geography.
Each set of glued wood is left overnight to set. Then those stacks are glued to one another, and then again, slowly gluing the entire tower together. The whole thing is about 4 feet tall so far. It's hard to do all this clamping alone, but here's a trick I figured out- Clamp down the clamps! Then you have a free hand to add more clamps. Also, don't get your skin caught in the slides. Blood blisters.
Clamp Round #1
Clamp Round #2
Clamp Round #3
There's probably 3-4 more rounds of clamping. Then I get to carve it all smooth.
