A few images of what is fermenting in my room right now………
“Inspired by the formation of crystal structures on rock, my piece is about the idea of new life forming over the vacant body beneath it. An ethereal structure which emerges from within and begins to encrust the body. A conceptual rebirth process.”
My piece for the CSM Neutopia catwalk show. Bamboo sticks.
The second part of this project was to choose one of the 21 pieces and replicate it 21 times so that they can be sold at a pop up shop. My piece is designed to be stitched onto the wearers clothing, a comment on throw-away culture. I wanted my product to be as sustainable as possible, therefore the card will is seed paper which you can plant and grow. I hope to promote the idea of 0% wastage.
As the project progressed I found that I was letting the materials and processes lead the work and decide some of the forms. I think I enjoy working in this way, not knowing entirely what the finished outcome will be. I like to experiment with materials without being constrained by an exact idea of what the finished outcome will look like.
Some of the final 21 pieces
Some early sketches from my 21 Pieces project in which I created a family of 21 different specimens using wire, thread and beads. My aim was to create a series of curious little objects which intrigued the viewer. I drew inspiration from microbiology text books and images and videos of cells forming and separating.
Recycled tin plate
Animals Inside Out exhibition at the Natural History Museum- one of the most amazing thing I’v ever seen. Especially the giraffe which had been sliced into cross sections and suspended from the ceiling.
The Hunterian museum is probably my favourite place in London, I have spent hours looking at all the beautifully strange specimens they keep there. I love the way they are all labelled so intricately and how they are displayed in tiny jars and glass bottles.
