wrapping objects - large scale - Christo and Jeanne Claude
wrapping objects with binding
wrapping objects with string / wool
Wrapping objects so they cannot be seen
Changing an object to be something else.
Why wrap? What is the intention?
Is it a cover up? A change , hiding the piece underneath, a protection??
Unbinding a exploration on biding with satin ribbon of a heart shaped flint, experiment in meditative practice.
Each binding was wound onto the rock so that it lay flat, held in place by a thumb. Several attempts were made to read how the ribbon wished to fall. De constructing it afterwards shows a sense of removing the manmade protective layer that was temporarily enfolding it. contained and made in a shoe box. Images show random unwrap were stone was lifted and allowed to drop back into the box and capture on iphone, no editing has been done to create sterile image.
Past loves of manipulating wire - below is my wedding bouquet- from 2018 - a technique created when studying and bought into my floral practice.
Playing with light and photographing works is something for this semester - no additional light sources on the originals, vibrancy bought out in editing process. to represent the true colours within the piece. All pieces adn patterns representative of different things in our lives. This was used at the hand fasting as at the registry office together with hand fasting binds.
I like using wire and textiles, as a medium, is it that I have been seeing through what is right infront of my face as a natural way of working now? slow down huh !!
