fibers crit space
A slight glimpse into a piece I am working on right now. I am trying to highlight the inherent qualities of the wall and let them instruct my ideas, in collaboration with my visual language, to create a compositionally comfortable piece. Sounds like a mouthful but it really isn't. I am adorning the wall, giving it beauty and a little bit of humor. I am using this wall as a site for a visual puzzle.
The first step was highlighting the holes in the wall that were preexisting in a way I saw most fit. This created its own pattern because of people's tendencies to pin their work in certain places. The next step was to layer my own self realized printed layer of hand drawn lines. This is playing with translucency and the idea that I wanted to display my printed design without disregarding how it communicates with what existed in its place originally. (so far it is said to look "beautiful")
My next step in this piece is to give the plug fixture purpose. (this could potentially be the angst or humor)
This was all just a puzzle I created for myself. I am trying to organize my ideas and solve it in a way that is comfortable for me.
Rule1: consider everything (in terms of the 'bigger picture')
Rule2: keep it quiet (so as not to let any of the elements overpower each other with their possibly different emotions)
