I'm working on another installation in my studio at present. Colour blocks of blue, green and pink. I also have a template for a box on the wall in metalic green contact. It's been an interesting medium to work with. I have to cut the strips myself, which is a bit more fiddly than just using a roll of electrical tape. But it does give more flexibility than electrical tape, as I can easly make thinner strips.
I have a bit of a thing for line drawings, like those for box templates. I have been printing them off and dreaming of putting them on walls, around corners and suck. Ooo!! I must spend some time making one on a convex corner. I can perhaps commandeer such a corner in the hallway at the studios and try that out. Putting a box template around a corner like that would be quite the thing! :)
The shapes for the shapes have again come from the sensor pads in the road. Love looking as them as I walk to/from the train. There's some great ones of La Trobe St in the city that I just adore. They have more lines. Perhaps they will appear in a later work.
Have some more sitting and looking to do on this installation, which is a bit challenging, with only 4 weeks until assessment. I feel like I have to be in a bit of a hurry to get a few more works done. However, these types of works take a long time. I will just keep plodding away.
