Inventivity – Studio Task – Observation

Inventivity, Projects


Tuesdays session was about exploring the product from many different angles. My task is to make a series of five A3 exploratory pieces, each in a different medium. The aim is to build up a range of marks and images which you may wish to digitally edit and use in your designs later on in the term.

I have begun this task by creating a collage by using natural imagery. Collage isn’t something I enjoy doing, however this makes me want to use it more to break down that negativity surrounding it. I think the outcome works well to communicate a message about nature. This to me also provokes me to ask what is it about? It seems simple yet there is obviously more going on here.

Using photoshop and Illustrator I have created three designs focussing on shape. I have creating these designs very geometrically to contrast my collage pieces. However, they still remind me of natural or more specifically biological or cellular forms.

I got back to basics here. I simply dropped indian ink on a page and blew it in all different directions. It’s quite beautiful. I have ideas now of using a view finder to section off areas and maybe starting to build a pattern or some kind of design inspired by these.
