Planning is key for successful time management, and by been aware of the tight time scale between now and graduation – every day counts. I prepare agendas or to do lists on weekends and evenings so that every working day is spent usefully. My task for today was to experiment with different household items that I had collected from around my own home, and to create as much sculptural pieces as I could during the working day.
Among the objects there were used lightbulbs, a box of chalks, stacks of blank CDS, Glass plant pot and a plastic pet ball.
This piece is made from about 6-7 CDS that has been melted and moulded into a mineral or a gemstone and dusted with talc. I also built the plinth by using an old frame. I used what was at hand and I think that the plinth could be much cleaner, but then again I believe that a plinth shouldn’t be a white box and should be completely relevant the the object. This idea definitely need refining and it will be something I will carry on further with by making larger versions and experimenting with different plinths.
Whilst looking for objects to use it became apparent that I was attracted to identical objects or repetitive objects. To me these 3-way plugs are Lego blocks to build with. The size of the piece was dictated by how many plugs I could find around the house. it’s playful.
