Design Philosophy




David Munson -
      Tension, compression, opacity, transparency, translucency, and curvability are all properties I seek to explore in my work. The skeletal and tensile characteristics of my work derives from the observation that the underlying structure can be infinitely more interesting than its cladding or skin. Tensile and compressive members lend a dynamism to the composition while obscure meaning can add an extra dimension to the three that are physical. The scale of most of my work is intended for indoor display. However, I think of these pieces as finished maquettes for larger scale outdoor work.
