Continuing on from Fragments and Latex – Part 1 I rescued some of the early failures and instead of using actual objects I used ink jet prints to experiment with. The prints were on 140 gsm ink jet paper. I applied two coats of latex onto the slates and then simply laid some of the […]Read more "Fragments and Latex – Part 2 – Prints"
I attended a Virtual Reality Taster Experience on Friday 25th January 2019 at Tape Community Music and Film run by Helfa Gelf. This offered the opportunity to experience to interact with a virtual environment using auditory, visual and haptic sensory feedback and explore the different software available for creating virtual reality environments. https://www.tiltbrush.com/ https://makezine.com/2016/03/24/makers-introduction-vr-best-software-tools-free/Read more "Virtual Reality Workshop"
I found my tutorial with Jonathan today to be very constructive. To date I have begun several threads of experimentation which were up for discussion. In the first instance we discussed the experimentation I had recently completed using latex. See Roof Slates and Latex. My intention is to upscale this experiment to create a much larger […]Read more "Tutorial – 18/01/19"
While on my site visits I collect some fragments of buildings that had previously been underwater- only small rusty metal parts and broken pottery that most would overlook – however in these broken remains I see the life that these objects once had and the representation of the lost communities and the collective memories having […]Read more "Fragments and Latex – Part 1 – Objects"
Having previously decided to investigate using lighter weight fabrics for my digital prints and an interest in creating a metaphor for the loss of homes and community in the context of collective and personal memory I have been thinking a lot about my own personal memories of home – particularly reflecting on my mums house […]Read more "Fabric Samples"
I have been reading the book, Evocative Objects by Sherry Turkle and am fascinated by the meaning we place on objects around us, making the seemingly ordinary and insignificant possess greater significance in our lives. Certain objects can bring a sense of reminiscence for us, evoking memories and recollections from our past. The meaning that […]Read more "Research – Evocative Objects"
I previously had an idea to latex the roof slates and decided to put this idea into action. I had in my mind a larger sculptural piece of work and saw potential in using the slates I had previously gathered to create this piece. I also had a desire to investigate potential projection surfaces and […]Read more "Roof Slates and Latex"
I have always been a bit of a squirrel, collecting random stuff that has little meaning to other people. Whilst on my site visits I had collected rusty nails, guttering and a bolt along with much broken pottery. Looking at these fragments I have collected from the various locations, I decided to put together some […]Read more "Fragments – Part 1"
