Summer Project – Task 2 ( Interventions)
After makeing the paperclips pieces for my studio unit, I moved to my work using staples very quickly, which meant that I did not get to try all the possibilities of the paperclips. One of these possibilities was contrasting the bright industrial yet intricate metal of the paperclips with the softer textures and colours of trees and other natural forms.
I thought of the paperclips as a netting or a spiders web, placed over these natural objects. The metal reflected the sunlight almost like morning due. Moving forward I would like to test this idea further maybe making a spiders web out of the paperclips and having it displayed and photographed both individually and on site. Also I would like to see how the seasons change the asthetics of each composition. I also like the idea of completely covering a tree/bush with an metal net.
