Herron Wearable Art and Sculpture Exhibition 2018

[SOUND] [MUSIC] [APPLAUSE]>>The Wearable Show is full of gallery performance and wearable art. It brings art in all dimensions. So we like to showcase, this year
especially, majors from all Herron focuses, and we’re utilizing
virtually the whole building. So it’s really amazing to bring you guys,
the public, and the community into our workspace and
our foundry.>>I decided to learn how to
suspend myself in rope and yes, it’s what I’m doing,
flying down the runway. It’s really different because
normally my art is, like, by myself in my room so
this is really weird having to get up in front of a bunch of people and
do a thing and be like here’s my thing. So it’s different, yeah.>>This show actually just is
the highlight of like stepping into the sculpture department. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of it and
finally being a part of the building and with a department that I’m
not used to being with. Early on in my Herron career,
I brought Bigfoot into my artwork because I loved zoology and Bigfoot is
more of a legend that I think we can relate to here in Indiana. [MUSIC]>>It’s pretty light in the back where
all the interesting parts are is bamboo, like big long bamboo scales,
then supported by curved welding rods, which is what makes it super
heavy because it’s all copper and steel trying to pull my head back. So it’s my forcing my mouth shut, it’s a pretty grueling experience
trying to wear that thing for so long. Not as scary as I thought it would be,
most of the nerves came beforehand. It’s a lot of fun being able to hear and
see people react.
