Thinking about this idea of the Wildling and with time to kill on the train I spent my time using digital imagery to process my thoughts a bit and try and visualise more my intentions for the costume I’m about to make. Much excitement as that’s my next step forward. Reflection

The reason I am interested in looking at Image Transfer is due to the fact that there is a lot of archive material relating to the events surrounding the building of the reservoirs and the removal of the community that has potential to be distorted and used in this project. I am also keen to […]

Documenting my sketchbook pages to date has made me reflect on the importance of a sketchbook as part of my process. An extension of each experiment, producing the sketchbook pages serves to give me space to step back from the doing and reflect on the process and experiment further. This helps me to see more […]

Developing the Fragments ideas further I was thinking about where I found the pieces and the fragments lying in the reservoir bed form a more solid piece to use artistically. I decided to create some masters from clay the could be used with latex. I rolled out four pieces of clay onto tin foil so […]

Having previously looked at including printed imagery on paper with latex and objects with latex I also wanted to experiment with printing on fabric. I have the laser printed samples and I decided to use an ink jet photo transfer. Again two layers of latex – thirds layer printed fabric then a layer of shirt […]

Contaminants interfere with the latex when curing, though as an artist this is probably of benefit. Brush Latex on in thin layers – Ensure there are […]

After my tutorial with Jonathan I felt really inspired to put some thought into making my wildling (tree stump) costume to be used in video footage. I have two main ideas in terms of the footage: Shooting the footage on site including using drone footage (drone now purchased) Using a green screen and applying the […]

All things that are akin to those objects I found. below is an example of the current state of the objects and what I hope to achieve. I have rusted items […]

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 […]
