In order to visualise the scale of some of my outcomes; I wanted to explore what they could “become”. Do they have a use, or are they made as purely art?
In this post, I will look at the largest scale piece I have made as discernible evidence.
Due to its size (around 2m x 2m) I felt it could become a house old object.
My question to myself was…how can I create drama and emotion, as well as conveying scale? Could the two mix?
Above: Using my designs as a blind.
This creates atmosphere, due to the colour. Sinister? Dramatic in a way, as it blocks out light, creating darkness and a false coloured light.
This concept could also psychologically hark back to my Narg’s loss of sight and seeing in off formats.
This large scale is new to me. I chose not only to print on a large surface, but enlarge my knotted hem design to match.
I am unsure how to progress with the size of this piece, but I feel that exercising my techniques in this way, has helped free up my previously smaller scale of working. I now have the choice of scales to work from, as you will see through my physical samples.
