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.
