studio practice – plan
as the foot worked so well i wanted to take this idea feather, so i decided to try and do a whole body to see how it would look and hang, for this i needed to plan alot so below are the photos of the planning before starting. the only thing that i did before planning was to go to the workshop and get the Perspex i wanted it to be just bigger than me so around 160cm in size. I want to hot glue gun the works to the Perspex but its another thing i don’t know about as im not sure if the work will be to heavy but i am going to try and do it anyway.
these are the plans for the next experiment i want to try, i have decided to try a whole body as it gives me a change to see how i could cast all of my body and add it to the Perspex but also how i could hang the piece more.
the first page of planning was the enisle how I could show my concept, all of these ideas i would love to try and i might try and create small sculptures to recreate the ideas. i wanted to see how different positioning could change how it looks, as i really like the Perspex idea but also do see it as constricting due to it being just a rectangle, but im still going to carry on and see how it works and then develop if needed. i want to also hang this in the same way so i can see if i want to hang my work or not, i like the idea of the work being hung due to the idea of it being timeless and how society’s view on body modifications and the ‘perfect’ body is a problem stuck in time due to it not being ‘ modern’ .
For these plans i need to think about how i could cast my whole body and this included my face, therefore i needed to plan it carefully in order to not hurt myself while doing so. so i decided to number my body parts on where it would be the most suitable to make the casts but also the most appropriate way to make the full body. although this will take a long time with drying the actual process of creating the cast does not take that long to make.
