Morph was made using natural light and 1:12 was created using a densitometer. The same process was carried out for each film, using a stainless steel tube.
I wanted to concentrate on the materials properties to coincide the properties of space. The object was sturdy, reflective and solid and to contradict this, an installation has been assembled through balance. This arrangement contradicts its properties when it engages with light creating ever changing fluid and elastic like morphing forms. It’s interesting how something so ‘sturdy’ can create an opposite of something fluid-like.
I engaged with the installation to mimic how one can pass through a space and the surrounding space will alter to accommodate ones existence. Space is described as “elastic”, which is quite a suffocating notion, being permanently engulfed by space. With my engagement, shapes are formed and alter by the light reflecting in the steel tube, which is interacting with the densitometer/natural light.
This process deconstructs the familiar objects that creates unfamiliar forms. The forms result in hypnotising movements and intriguing colours from the different levels of light exposure.
I am drawn to tubes in my practice as I like how you can look through something and see the world differently. It works with my alternate space that I have created for my work to exist and to be engaged with.
Drawing with objects is a new series I am working on, looking at drawing in its broadest sense, mark making. Using ideas of chance and play, I added black ink to children's bubbles. Arranging paper across the studio (over the walls and the floor), I blew the bubbles across the space. This bubbles layered in areas, creating forms and depth, contrasting with other pieces with limited contact with the ink. I used bubbles, as I enjoy how a space in contained for a moment. It is almost like an alchemic process, a floating form to then become a mark on a page. The work is energetic and performative in its process. I think the 'action', results in an evident 'happening' on paper; capturing a moment in time.
