From the mushroom idea I have (I’m still experimenting with this) developed my idea and i want to experiment within crashing the plaster to show damaged with plants to symbolize grown within mental health. I also want to add some that have dead plants in to show a healthy mental health and a bad one. This was inspiered partly by Emil Alzamora.
my plans within this idea….
I feel like the plaster would work better as it would crack more, but I don’t really want it to completely crack so I want to experiment and see if it does and how long it will last.
For this i would also let the plants grow out of the eye sockets as well so maybe the head could actual be a skull.
next post will be making the mold/clay for the head. For both ideas.
I wanted to look into head space within drug use and metal health, as they can be linked, so I was thinking of using mushrooms to show the growth of a mental health but also people link mushrooms to drugs (e.g. magic mushrooms).
She is an artist that has made me think of a way to develop my idea and make it a lot more interesting and something I would love to experiment with.
These are some works of her that I found interesting but the one that really caught my eyes was one where she has a human head and had a plant out the top of it..
This image is what gave me the idea of how I could improve and develop my work in to something more interesting and experimental than just a simple sculptor. I still have more ideas than this one but I want to experiment with it to see how well it would work.
When first looking into heads I was thinking of going through a drug like subject but after seeing this it made me think of a better was to show my work, and have the plants roots crack the work. I have a plan for this but ill put it on another post.
so from this next I will be making a plant of how I could now do the ideas of my next experiment. I will also be adding designs and possible images of it.
