Matt Dwyer: Seeded Figure Fabrication

After a lot of run-around and setbacks, I laser printed all my parts and have begun assembling the sculpture. The pieces are numbered, but wow, what a task to visualize and appropriate every plane for every notch that makes up the body!
I am so excited to fill it with soil so I can begin planting. I've been thinking about how I will contain the soil within the volume. A friend suggested papier mache over the soil-packed figure, which would be great, I think, because of its biodegradability. I was also thinking perhaps cheesecloth, but papier mache might be the best solution until the plants can take root and solidify the soil.
