Exploratory project / finalising week 15

Further experimentation on using the coloured water – trying to work out a way of presentation using plastic bags as a floor installation – approx dimensions 250x150cm.

Preferably the end result will be the plastic bags placed on a light box in a dark room


Exploratory project / Week 15

I am working on this floor piece using plastic clear bags to put the coloured water in – also diluting the water to get different  tones.  The plastic bags initially came up as an idea as a low cost option for further experimentation. But may be I will keep them as a reference to environmental protection awareness as well as a reference to the way the almonds are packed immediately after collection in big sacks (not plastic though, more like canvas).
