Artist Cameron Gainer talks about his piece, "Forest Through the Trees." The almost seven-foot tall Bigfoot is a re-creation of frame #352 from the famous 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film of the creature. The sculpture, made from a steel and fiberglass skeleton covered with faux fur and modeling compound, made its debut at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, NY in 2006.
Artist Cameron Gainer says the piece, "IN/OUT," like all of the work in "Impact Sight" is meant to surprise people with a highly unusual event that they're likely to want to take a picture of - thereby "proving" its existence. The piece, commissioned by the USF Contemporary Art Museum, consists of hand-carved EPS foam which was placed over a steel frame, and then coated with a two-part urethane coating and paint.
