TIME STUDIO ASSIGNMENT 9
For this assignment we were asked to explore the systems of making as a record of time. The work could’ve been made of found material, material that is worked, man-made or natural material, or even the human body in a per-formative construction. I decided to focus more so upon creating a worked material. That process being a chaotic, distressed one.I thought it would be an inventive idea to rework a painting I had created with one of my friends outside of class time. The painting was actually possible to be created due to left over materials in itself. I was getting paper cut for my Surface Studio class and was left with a fair amount to work with.
After the painting was created initially, added numerous layers of black and red paint triangles to the board. Triangle by definition in science represents change. I felt that most of the time, time is a result of change, or vise versa. The assignment specifically asked for for a three-dimensional work, so I had to adjust the illustration board once more. I decided to cut the board into four equal squares. I painted the back of the squares either red or black. After doing so, I attempted to apply wood glue for a more rushed process. The messy, foaming, drippy nature added to the overall structure of the work. After applying said wood glue, I removed the panels from their almost glued state and added duck tape. This was to further implicate the idea of being rushed, being pressed, and holding on for dear life. I wanted to use two different colors of duck tape as if I was really scrounging for supplies. Depending on how you view the piece, you either see the aggressive patterning being displayed all throughout your viewing area, or you see a combination of black and red backs with the pattern.
Ultimately, I’m expecting what would be negative feedback. The craft on this project would not be what many considered refined or thought-provoked, but there really is a method behind the madness.
