contribution: concept development - composition - aesthetics - curation - display design - personal interpretation - moodboard
A project manifesting my practice of intuitive observation and collecting pieces of the surroundings. As a surrounding exploration method I collected objects that I intuitively got drawn to and created a curated board as an attempt to organise and translate what’s organic. The grid represents a mathematical order contrasting with the unruly and indescribable forms of nature.
The center piece of the collection is a piece of a tree - a trunk rotten from the inside that I found by the river. Amazed by it’s natural aesthetic features - shapes, colors, textures I cut it in order to fully see it. I created a series of pedestals to display the original geometries of the tree trunk.
Other pieces consist of a color palette, a layering arrangements composed of organic and man made, a reconstruction of a tree trunk made out of sliced wooden bloc and than burnt, shape exploration through translating organic shapes on man made.
All pieces have potential to be further developed into products concepts taking either of explored features as a starting point.
Done during Cultivating Nature workshop tutored by Lex Pott in Domaine de Boisbuchet 2018 that I participated in as a residency winner.
