Last meeting of ‘Contemorary Construction’ was on site and we decided on some limitations. We only going to use materials and work in black, white and grey. I got feedback on the flyer I designed for the exhibition and made the changes. We took a photo of us on site for publicity and discussed advertisement in various places locally and nationally as well as clarified a few things with CADS.
Since then Katya started a special page on Facebook for ‘Contemporary Construction’ where we started to discuss texts, upload images and keep people informed about our progress.
I’ve started making different models of origami barges and want to use the soap paper where my soap bricks from GRAIN were rapped in. The one design I like best I just don’t seem to get right; there is something I can’t work out from the instructions. I’ll bring it to our CC meeting tomorrow. The barges made from this semi translucent paper work really well with light and they swimm brilliantly too. Not sure yet how they will be presented.
Also want to show my animation ‘To and From Grain Warehouse’ and that has white drawings of barges in it that are animated. So there is a connection.
In between learning how to make origami floating things I’m reading for my research topic. I need to narrow down what I’ll actually write about in my dissertation. Feel a bit all over the place at the moment and can’t wait for a tutorial. It’s not long now till our seminars and lectures start – First week in October. Good!!
