So I mentioned the idea of creating several possible outcomes for the current project. Well although I am experimenting in these pieces with layering, which ment hacksawing grooves into nails, not fun, they are also possible outcomes, although alot of my work I can see on a much larger scale than 30cmx30cm circles.
The photograph I had taken developed into twelve mdf discs, each bore a different surface image from the series of photos I had taken. They then under took the laborious process of weaving thread around pannel pins to create the Spirograph design I have come to love.
Coming close to the end of our project at college, and we are asked to produce possible outcomes for our work. I decided to use the idea of installation, which I had been inspired by the work of Donald Judd, Minimalist, and try and get the Spirograph into the environment. Initially i took photos of a clear Spirograph disc against different outside surfaces.
Studying at Hereford College of Arts, undertaking a Foundation Studies course since Sept 2009 the little space I am given has evolved alot over the past couple of months. My project is focuses on the idea of the Spirograph and links with artists such as Andy Gilmore and Lesley Halliwell.
