Practice in Context – Sculpture

Monday 22nd May 2017 – Reflection

I feel that I have progressed immensely with the Sculpture Module this year. At first to be honest I wasn’t to happy to be creating work with no context but soon got into the playfulness of doing just for the sake of doing.

I had quite a few fails along with successes and I think that I stretched each piece using either photography and digital manipulation or video. I also used skills gained in the Video module to create the video that is to accompany the sculpture exhibition.

I really enjoyed making the coral sculptures and envisaged that I could make an entire room filled with them in response to the death of the Great Barrier Reef.

I took advantage of my trips to Pontio to learn different methods that can be used within sculpture and I feel that I gained more insight into sculpture as a result of this.

Tuesday 16th May 2017 – Video of Corals

After a request from Helen to create a video to accompany our Sculptures that are to be exhibited, I decided to record some video of the sculptures to include with the exhibition. My plan is to overlay the video of my coral with video of reflections in water and some real footage of the Great Barrier Reef, my piece seems to have gained a very current environmental context all of it’s own making.

The video below is just the raw video but I wanted to include some in my blog here.
