Look at the blocks and the negative space between them. COINCIDENCE? I think so, but it’s still cool.
I’m banning myself from Tumblr and all sites non-academic for tonight and maybe tomorrow, depending on how good I am about finishing my work today. If I’m spotted here or elsewhere on the internet, the people of the internet are entitled to pick a punishment for me.
Just…hopefully not this:
This artwork I made for my final piece of assessment last year. It was an installation inspired by John Green’s novel Paper Towns and on a smaller part Looking for Alaska. The black disk that the labyrinth sits on has a diameter of 170cm and a circumference of 534cm to give you a sense of how big and time consuming it was.
The base was created from an old used canvas with the labyrinth lines drawn on and then cut out. All the 2D ‘buildings’ were all hand made by me, I cut up cardboard and then took pages from an novel (that I had no use for anymore) and glued them to both sides of the cardboard. Once the building was done I would glue it to the base.
Once it was all set up I created a sound-scape from me saying lines from Paper Towns. It took me about 5-6 weeks (class, home, after and before school) to complete but I was very happy with the results.
Fun fact, the book that I used for the buildings had a character called Ester in it, so I tried to put the pages with her name on it on the buildings as many times as possible. DFTBA
