Experimenting with melting and bending perspex

 

 

Carrying on with my material experiments, today I am melting and bending my perspex etchings to give them a sculptural form.

To shape the melted perspex I have bent steel sheets into a range of different curved formations. These metal shapes will act as a template for the perspex to mould to when it is hot.

I am pleased with the results of these experiments and am hopping to create similar work on a larger scale for my degree show.

Degree Show Planning

My recent experimentations and research into interdisciplinary processes and new mediums have given me some possible ideas for the making of my degree show pieces.

I know that I would like my piece or pieces to explore the intersections of printmaking, photography, drawing and sculpture. For this exploration to occur I am looking for certain criteria within the mediums I am working with.

Once I have found the material/materials and processes that allow for this interdisciplinary exploration, I will need to experiment with and decide how I would like my work to be displayed.

Above are some of the possible outcomes and options for my degree show pieces.
