open art exhibition at the University of Essex, a great opportunity to get our work into the public,

i dropped off the black and white sculpture (which i still need to pick up, oops) and it was placed in the exhibition by the curators, it was interesting how they pieces together the 100 or so entries that were submitted. the photographs of apples were those who won the first prize, quite rightly they were incredibly beautiful. 

i was intrigued to see how my work would be displayed and to see if the piece would be able to withstand the time it was exhibited, as each thread was just threaded through the foam sides, not fixed in any way. in the photograph you are able to see that some threads had been pulled through, which i dont know if i was disappointed by or not, i was quite happy to see that the delicate state was altered.

the exhibition had an event which meant all artists exhibiting could come for a glass of wine and a presentation, it was truly inspiring to see such a  wide variety of artists and works hung in one space, especially as it was such a small event.

experimentation with the environmental space, seeing what i can create with using the space i have. using thread i find is so rewarding. i have this attraction to entrapment, and boundaries and the delicate nature of the thread

images taken from the installation of our St Martins exhibition in colchester. the entire foundation course submitted a piece into the space, and it was really interesting to see such a variety of works. 

it was a real challenge to work within a different exhibition space. we werent allowed to use easels, mannequins or any form of support but the floor we walked on - having this challenge really made a difference to the works i feel and it was truely inspiring to see artists working within the boundaries set for them

prototype for my final piece, which is now complete. its taken me a while to post about my recent project as i’ve been trying my hardest to get as much work in as humanly possible.

this piece is designed to rotate, though i havent used the material i ended up using in my final piece, youre able to get the idea from the similar material i’ve used here

Jeongmoon Choi’s Drawing in Space


Working with fine thread as her medium, Berlin-based artist Jeongmoon Choi creates these arresting installations. Displayed under blacklights, Choi’s meticulously-arranged thread patterns produce illusions of light and space — a total, enveloping visual experience for gallery visitors. Galerie Laurent Mueller, where Choi’s work is now on display, has this to say about Drawing in Space:

“The thread is coloured and used to outline or redefine the architecture of the spaces the artist invests. Drawing directly into space with her hand, the artist addresses questions about our environment, as well as about aspects of lodging and the role of nature in our urban spaces.

The drawings become project or even projection of an imaginary construction that takes form in its environment starting from a line, a thread, which represents the chronological decisions of a progression in space. The transition from a plane to a volume is just as important as the comparison between interior space for living and exterior space for living.”

i wanted to experiment with different materials to see whether the medium i was working with was the best suited to the ideas i wished to achieve. once i had created the wire weave i found i wasnt satisfied with it the way i was with the string pieces, once it was created nothing really changed within it and the piece bored me, it didnt excite me the way other works have done

a compilation of all the small studies i created in the early stages of the project. each piece i was experimenting with different ideas and forms within the boxes.
these boxes became aggravating and i found myself wishing to break away from the boundaries of the boxes as they became too restricting.
i began moving onto larger scaled pieces, ones which would be self supporting

here i was looking at aspects of self manipulation within my work.
i found this reflects on us as human beings, the environment we are within, even if such small aspects of it affect us, changes are still taking place. with my work i am looking at this much more in a physical sense and the coloured thread which i have used within this piece make the changes much more apparent to the viewer as each thread stands alone on the surface of the card.
