Secondary Research; Gursky, A. 'Centre Georges Pompidou', Aesthetic Analysis

"In the foreground a long display table traverses the width of the image, emphasising the horizontality of the picture plane. Behind it a series of parallel display tables recedes into the distance. The protective Perspex covering the displayed documents renders the surface of the tables reflective of parallel rows of fluorescent light tubes above. The strip lights and exposed ventilation shafts on the ceiling of the exhibition hall echo the linear placement of the long tables, reinforcing the horizontal focus and deep single-point perspective of the image. Visitors to the exhibition stand over the vitrines and look at architectural models displayed on low level plinths. The neutral colours of the industrial carpet and display cases are broken by flashes of yellow and red in the clothing of the museum visitors." - Tate

 

Ideas for further development: using reflective materials to create a dialogue between an object and its surroundings, disrupting linear or neutral themes with a jolt of colour or another contrasting feature such as damage or wear.

Secondary Research; Anni Albers Retrospective, Materials Analysis.

These images give make me think about using gouache, ink, felt tip pens, also how drawings can be translate into embossing, etchings, stencilling, print, textures. I will make small intricate samples as I am seeing through my research at this exhibition that a more detailed, delicate approach especially with regards to mark making leads to more successful designs in this context.

These technical grids are used to plan the grade of steep steepness of warp threads.

 

These to me look like staircases. I want to use grid paper to translate my collages into samples.

On Brutalism; Carsten Höller in 032c, (2017). Conceptual Analysis

"As a starter, why don’t we eat chicken brains? I’m sure they would be delicious, especially with regard to the woodcock I ate at El Bulli. In our part of the world, the heads of birds are not usually eaten. What do we do with all the heads of all these chickens that we kill for consumption? So the manifesto is also about using ingredients which are not used, or overlooked, or considered not good enough. By preparing them the right way, you not only make them edible, but you can also make a proper Brutalist dish. In these photos of Brutalist dishes, we have a common sandpiper, which I prepared in Ghana, with the head opened after it accidentally died."

"I think that’s often overlooked. If you have a piece of warm meat, it becomes colder and colder while you eat it, and each bite responds to the pieces you have eaten before. Your inner lust system wants you to eat more, while the other side of you says, “Enough, I’m full.” All this becomes an inner choreography that changes, which you can only ex- plore if you have enough of it to eat."

Ideas for further development: material changes using heat, materials which are normally not considered for fashion & textile design; rubber, rubber shavings, wood shavings, acrylic, using materials that change i.e plaster going from liquid to solid.

Secondary Research; For Vicente Huidobor: Life is a parachute voyage and not what you'd like to think it is, Anselm Keifer in White Cube Gallery, Conceptual Analysis & Inspiration.

The lens from which I look at the world is changing, I am observing the 'space in between' more than the objects themselves, I find this mode of thought interesting with a view to create space. 

Ideas for further development: the dimensions of shapes in relation to its surrounding, think about 'absence of x' more than 'x'.

Secondary Research; Seam Details, Process Analysis

I am trying to visualise how architecture might be used and translated into select details in fashion and textiles. I zoomed in on the detail that I am curious about.

In response I want to use embossing, stencilling, etching on to plaster, lino cutting perhaps - something that creates the effect seen in this image while making it in my own way.

Primary Research; Process Analysis & Inspiration

I like the fine, arrowing lines these images for the actual process or perhaps my own imagined process with regards to how they were made. I turned these images side ways as this helps me to abstract these details from the object itself in this case facades.

 

I am going to draw these in my sketchbook to highlight the details that draw my eye, the details I intend to use in my design development process are specifically it is the angular engravings that draw my eye. Fine and precise, arrowing. These inspire me to think about using 'embossing', engraving, stencilling, etching.
