Making Process- Part 1

 

I began the making section by recreating the designs I have produced through Photoshop. I plan to make ambiguous amorphic sculptures through the use of layering each one of these on top of each other whilst linking to the fact that there is in fact rhythm in chaos. I have no sculpture Idea in mind the plan is to let the materials work together to create a free flowing constructed shape.

I began by stretching nylon coloured tights and then filling them with cotton wool to enable to tights to retain a shape. At first I became a slave to the image I had created on Photoshop by using elastic bands to recreate the lumps and bumps of the skin tag design, however over time I became more free to the idea and began using pressure to create dents and mould the overall sculpture, I then sewed them together to create a solid product.

Over time I began to experiment with scale, I began to make them even bigger the larger scale made them easier to mould however I like the subtlety of the smaller ones. To continue the making process I will begin to sew them together using my own hair to relate back to the human form.
