As I looked for interior volumes, I found myself attracted to volumes of clear objects in which you could see the volume from the outside. I also found myself attracted to volumes that make up bigger objects, like bodies or figures. I think any of the clear objects I photographed could be used in sculptures and could be really interesting. I think using clear glass to cover something or surround part of a project could be really intriguing.  Also, utilizing parts of the body, like open mouths or ears, could be really interesting on sculptures that don’t necessarily relate to the human body. Also filling those kind of interior volumes could be really interesting. I also think using mesh, like a tea infuser, could create really cool textures and be interesting because you could sort of see through it but not clearly.

An artist who used the interior volumes of the human body is Choi Xoo Ang. She makes somewhat creepy sculptures of human-like figures and I think the sculptures that include open mouths and other volumes are even more successful at creeping out the viewer.
