Ideas and progression on large installation piece.
Working with the idea of turning things inside out and upside down. Looking at bringing things from the inside (of the body) to the outside. Looking at caverns and caves and notions of space between the objects within a space. Been speaking to another institution about doing some slump glass for the puddles (image 2) that will sit underneath the cocooned wax 'hearts'. Also looking at ideas surrounding fine art and craftsmanship and how casting from moulds contradicts the ideas of creating a piece that is unique. Looking at the subtle differences between each individual piece which makes them different from each other. Have been 'engraving' each individual piece differently to help the viewer realise that they all have slight differences. Will show the progression concerning the engraved lines and the glazing throughout the process over the next week or so.
