This practical experiment was about finding the right material / reaction / meaning combination in order to create a piece of visual communication which speaks for itself and contains certain messages depending on the words and reactions of materials.
Here for example it was about using the element fire:
#fire#cardboard letterforms # Hopes & Dreams
#cress #grow up
I used same concept in connection with the growing process of plants:
1st. day - Spreading out the seeds made me realise they cannot
be too close together as it would suspend or stop them from growing.
5th. day - Temperature : Cling film increased the process of
growing as the effect was similar to the the one as in a “glasshouse“.
7th. day - The excitement of noticing the first movements even if
the process of growth is too slow for the human eye to perceive.
9th. day - Analysing the observation that the movments of the growing process was going towards the window - in the direction of the sun. The lifespan and the growing process were the same interval.
Using nature as a stencil in contrast to to the more common way of adding background colours or images in Photoshop or InDesign.
THE ICE EXPERIMENT:
Using the feature of melting in order to create meaning within the words # anxiety# sad #pain.
Colour has been used as an additional element to support the word. All these elements are vital aspects in order to communicate.
"Jause" (german) stands for snack/lunch. I made it out of cheese while it get eaten up bit after bit....
