T1-MMT-P5-s1 Review – an exploration of materials and space

The Review stage has taken me considerably longer than anticipated. I’ve been amazed – almost overwhelmed – by the amount of material generated. I considered another level of summary, condensing to a dot-point list of relevant ideas, but found that too much was lost in the process plus it all started feeling a bit stale. I’ve decided instead to take enough for my first set of samples, then come back to the full sketchbook to refresh and inform for the next cycle.

In theory Stage 2 – Research is next, but I’ve decided to interleave that with Stage 3 – Sample-making. It seems a more natural way of working – research leads have already been making their appearance in the sketch pages during Stage 1. Also I noted in my review of Assignment 3 the rhythm of work with casting and molding (12-Oct-2015), and I know there will be time waiting for samples to harden which can be used effectively for research.

The working title for the final piece(s) is now An exploration of materials and space. It will probably still look like a collection of vessels, but makes clearer that my interest is in continuing to explore my materials, their properties individually and in combination, and to consider the parts as a whole installation.

For my first set of samples I want to look at resin in combination:
