6. Which medium enables you to work more spontaneously?
Pause, pause, pause.
I would be inclined to say traditional medium, but there is so much that the digital medium has to offer and it is rapidly changing— I can be quite spontaneous. For example, posing a Daz model in the projects I mentioned earlier is so spontaneous for me. Unfortunately, I do a lot of sculptures of children and wish they would expand that line more. I’m also now using the posing of Daz models to assist me with 2d work – More Illustration on this blog.
When I think about architectural sculpture, as mentioned before, I would say digital. But I think the important element is that it is not an either or scenario; it is taking a mix of many different technologies and traditional methods and mixing them up for whatever project is at hand. Before my introduction to digital possibilities, my tools fit in coffee cans that sat in my studio, or in a tool box. Now they are also in the office or at service bureaus or as bits of data.
This is an interview of 10 questions by Mathias Herbster of FH Vorarlberg University in Austria directed to Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon about the comparison of digital and traditional sculpture.
