A wire (and chipboard) sculpture that depicts, and describes the word clumsy.

Using my wire sculpting skills I had acquired early on in ART-13, I enjoyed it enough that I decided to take it on again in my final project. Each figure on the staircase represents a human falling down each step. While realistically, no one falls down stairs that dramatically, the gestures used in each figure depict a sense of motion and flow that give away the pun.

As an extra step for both clarification and aesthetic, yellow EL wire is attached to each figure to highlight the word within.
