To make the most of the momentum that this season brings, and the sunny (drying) weather, I’m making 30 shapes per day for the 30 days of June. By doing this, the various processes that I take the work through, will become more structured, and build impetus, helping me to stay on track – something like working in a laundry (in miniature) and having to repeatedly take the wash loads through each cycle.
My intention is to hang all the finished shapes on lines, in July and create a large installation to record through photographs and a video, and then to subsequently use the pieces for individual sculptures.
I’m excited to record this – lots of inspiring moments occur during the making, which get lost and forgotten – so I’ll post these up through the month, mainly I expect, by way of images.
Laminated paper sheets ready for cutting shapes from. The core papers are layered cereal boxes, stripped of their outer coating, and for some of the surfaces I’ve used Japanese rice paper.
