Monday, illustrated.

In my latest fine art project, I was inspired by installation artist Sarah Sze's use of 'connectors', which allow her to join together found objects, creating 'leftovers of human behaviour'. I also researched the spontaneous, chaotic embroideries of Tilleke Schwarz, and was inspired to let go, and draw whatever came to me. This resulted in a precise, yet fluid illustration of my view of the objects, processes and events of Monday 17th September.
This concept developed further, and became more of an infographic map, contrasting my subjective view of the world with an objective structure of daily events.

Last days of summer

Early September, making use of the last beautiful rays of summer sunshine on Bournemouth beach.

The Box Project

Over the last few days I have been working on a project at AUCB, where I am currently studying, in which we were given one cardboard box, and told to just be creative with the box! I decided to focus on the physical structure of the box, and created a lampshade. I took my inspiration from sculptor Tony Cragg's fluid layers, and fashion designer Issey Miyake's use of pleating to create a dynamic feel. 
I wanted to give my box a bright yellow lining, as I thought this would help the light reflect more easily and also give it an interesting contemporary feel.

I have created an ephemeral jewellery collection inspired by my fascination with the physical change between liquid and solid states. The jewellery is made from caramelised sugar which I have  manipulated into abstract shapes, before allowing each piece to cool into a permanent solid. I then took each one and sprayed it with chrome coloured paint, creating a beautiful precious appearance. The metallic fa├žade also enhances the idea of fluidity of the organic shapes, as well as creating a transient sealant layer, coating the sugar with enamel, until an increase in room temperature begins the gradual and inevitable reversion to liquid.

This is an experimental video I created as part of my art project. I'm fascinated by the beautiful formations that ink droplets create in water, and I have documented my experience in this video.
