Theodore Lee – Virtual Reality

Artist: Theodore Lee
Title: Virtual Reality
Media: sculpting
Grade: 10th grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Michelle Cho

My piece is about how technology has collided with nature. By making a sculpture where technology combines with nature, I created the idea of how people use their computers so much that they don’t see true nature, just pixels on their computers. I used clay and glaze for this piece. For the process of making the sculpture, I made several slabs and put them together using more clay. The hardest part of the sculpture was putting the slabs together because they were often floppy and did not fit. This was the first time making a clay sculpture like this and I am very happy with how it turned out.
