I was looking through my stuff to find things that were relevant o a project I’m trying to get funding for; I’ll post a summary about that later. I found these images of a sculpture I did in first year at uni. I should note that I k near on nothing about close up photography, or light theory at this point. I was still all fresh and bright-eyed; except for the heavy eyeliner I used to wear back then.
I called it a narrative sculpture because it was meant to be like a miniature set for a story. The story was about a Naga going to an Alchemist to ask him to make him human. At the time I was doing this whole arty fartsy thing about why the human form was considered better or something like that. In the end the Alchemist gave him a tainted elixir that consequently kills the Naga.
The structure was made of wood and cut sheet metal. The figures were made with a wire skeleton, plasticine and gauze.
Enjoy looking at my past… I’m still unclear if I did.
Images also now near the end of image gallery on image page.
