About this creation


This sculpture is part of my touring exhibit, Big Leagues Little Bricks, celebrating the beauty and lore of baseball as a part of Americana. The show is on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum now through September 2013.






A main feature of this show is a series of figures each in a unique extreme pose indicative to baseball, showcasing the almost dance-like qualities of the sport. This is a batter posed at "the crack of the bat". The sculpture is half-life size (about 3 feet long).



Each of these sculptures in the series is built entirely with black LEGO pieces; black doesn't read very well because of shadows, and when you look at them in person they almost look 2-dimensional, like a silhouette. So you could focus on the figures' poses I intentionally left them featureless (like a mannequin). As you walk around them, the silhouettes change, and the figures look like they're really moving.

Awesome sculpture! Though maybe he shouldn't drop his back shoulder that much, but hey, he'll get there.

The best one from baseball series! I guess what happens if you can now make it with colors so it looks like a real man? But of course, this is also great! :)
