This afternoon I took part in a workshop lead by previous UCA Master student and current residence artist Kurara. https://twitter.com/yoshikurara2
Heres a little bit about her work:
'I am interested in the relationship between objects and space. I am interested in the transformation of objects (their physical presence and their semiotic ambiguity'
We where invited to use everyday objects to created out own atheistic beauty, in effect creating 3D drawings. Although this is a completely different way of working, I could draw many comparisons between the process and considerations I was using to created my 3D drawing with those I use in my 2D practice. There is a consideration in where I place the objects within the process of making and an awareness of where the geometric shapes and lines meet, even though it was somewhat dominated by the objects I chose. There are grouping of objects in sets of threes and a representation of control. A sense of playfulness is in the objects used (dogs waste bags and kitchen items) that is present in my use of the Spirograph. All of these comparisons drawn only makes it more evident that my practice is process lead and has an element of lose and control. Many of the movements, decisions and placements of objects are intuitive.
Here are some of the other artist responses from the work shop.
