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

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.
