Based on the description beside the artwork, the Sensory Deprivation Helmet is a big helmet made of plywood, fabric, and stuffing. At first, I saw this big light brown helmet and wondered what that was. From the outside, it is obvious that it is made from a piece of wood. More specific, it is plywood. I assume plywood is a thin wood that usually used for making art objects because it is thin yet has a wood material. The shape of the helmet is a lot of plywood shaped in equilateral triangles with a black color on the edge and composed in a geometric way to construct the shape of a 3D circle, sphere, or ball. In addition, in the middle of each triangle has a tiny plywood shaped rectangle with darker brown as if it is keeping each triangle together. When I looked more closely, the edge of the triangles glued with a special glue for wood. The big helmet is put on the white table that stick to the wall. Even though we can see it is not really neat. On the contrary, I think the creator did a great job to make the artwork. There are three lights on the top of the artwork, so it creates two shadows, the main and secondary shadows. I think the creator is not really thinking about the lighting, since everyone will know it’s a sphere of wood. The object’s material is a little bit rough, because I believe it’s done manually by hand. In the plywood, there is a soft line because it’s a real wood. The dominant color of the artwork is obviously brown, but since each triangle has an edge...

...ally thinks about every aspect to make the helmet works. The idea of choosing triangular plywood into a sphere with geometric way is really incredible. No doubt for the strength of the object, because it’s made of plywood. It must be not really heavy too. The geometric way is unexpectedly marvelous too. I can imagine how the creator as an art student must spend his time to learn about the practical tasks: learning about how the geometric way works and measure every inch to make a perfect ball. But, it is the meaning that the creator focuses on. Even the function is clear in the description, the simple yet elegant style of this object gives us an enchantment and desire to try the helmet. At the end, despite to the fact that it is not for public, we still can try it using our creativity to build the similar object, and escape from reality for once, as the creator asks.

- What comes to mind when you hear the word “art”. For some people, it might be the image of a beautiful painting, an intricate sketch, or maybe even an elegant granite statue. However, the true value of an artwork lies much deeper than its physical qualities. Rather, the power of an artist lies in his ability to provoke strong emotion and critical thinking in the minds of observers. Recently, while on a class trip to the Allen Priebe Gallery, a community art gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, I was exposed to the work of two local artists....
