Unit 1

 

The work produced fom October 2014 through June 2015) was inspired by nature and human structures, manifestedly represented by fractal geometry with the exception of Baby Britain which references surrealism. In my previous work I have often used geometry as a way of contextualising figurative/narrative elements however the immersive ecosophy of UAL Wimbledon's green/traditional atmosphere would allow me to research situationism in an entirely different and unique social context comprised of international as well as local UK/European cohorts and tutors. I would be exposed to  methodologies and aproaches to "making" art and designing one's practice that I had not fully appreciated before. This was complemented by readings of texts by Deleuze, De Bord and, local readings into the distinct and unique topography of England's natural wealth of green spaces and Edgelands (Farley/Roberts and the integrated contextual practices for sustainability of Lucy Orta, Edwina Fitzpatrick.

I also became more familiar with the ever-growing areas ecologies of of social engagement in contemporary art through the writings of Nicolas Bourriaud, Cross. 

 

I was therefore able to frame and examine my practice as something situated in a fixed, place and social setting, the potential for enthalpy, development and growth researched and explored through the dematerialized state.
