YuKonstruct partnered with Splintered Craft, the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Les EssentiElles and White Ribbon Yukon to make a project for the 12 Days to End Violence Against Women campaign. Over several days we built a large sculpture with the help of many volunteers.
The sculpture depicts a woman walking forward, with the support of her community represented by glowing hands lifting her up.
YuKonstruct member Chris Lloyd designed the sculpture in SketchUP before it was brought to life in the real world.
The 7-foot-tall woman was constructed by wrapping copper wire around a welded skeleton. The 50 supporting community arms were made by “casting” volunteers’ arms with clear packing tape.
