I created a maquette as an intentional plan for my final portfolio piece. This became a work in its won right, developed by introducing slime mould into the space. Interestingly, the slime mould struggled to survive. In future development I will either use the time lapses I have created or find a better living environment for the slime mould.
I have embedded images of slime mould into the 'outstallation' and thus, making the invisible, visible. I found the combined images successful but to further develop the work I will embed the time lapse video work into the 'Inside Outside' images.
Following 'Wall Murals 1 and 2', I developed my own 'Outstallation'. In this work I aim to explore the relationship between human living spaces and the outside natural word. Setting up an analogue TV outside and photographing the static image was interesting due to the profound disconnect from normal living room environments.
I wanted to photograph and document this multicellular Protista growing because of it's 'intelligence' in its ability to find the fastest route to food. Therefore, giving precedence to the notion that even the smallest living things in our ecosystems hold as much value as any other being.
The development of the paintings onto a larger canvas with a more refined colour palette. For this exhibition i also displayed some jesmonite ducks on the windowsill.
Week 5 Autumn Term Exhibition
Using acrylic paint on canvas in reference to popular aesthetic interior design trends. Refining my colour palette to mimic that of popular interior design.
Series of Blob Paintings
Responding to my concerns about current interior trends, I created ‘Blobs Series’ (October 2019). I aimed to explore the relation between art and design. I sought to exaggerate features and common themes found by heightening the use of abject sickly colours to create tension and make the work unsettling.
