Preparing For The Show

In order to prepare for the exhibition we have collectively as a group sanded the walls and painted the room to ensure it is in pristine condition to show our work. We have each been given an allocated space in which we can display our work.

To hang my piece I experimented with different compositions in my space and came to the conclusion that it would be better for each fragmented piece to be hung at different levels and with different layers to create a more built up effect. To do so I used two thin pieces of wood and filament wire to hook them onto the wood. This was very difficult and fiddly to do due to the fact that it was hard to get them into an organised composition. With some of the pieces I really like the way in which they have natural twisted and curved and I want to bring this look into some of the other pieces. Furthermore, I need to use more of the filament wire to tack the pieces to the board to stop them from twisting. I think as an additional way to add more texture to it would be to add a light that will project onto the piece from the floor to cast the shadows on to the white background.

Below are some of the images I have taken of the wallhanging;
