House - October 2017
As my first project at Bath school of Art and Design, I decided to design a machine that explained how it felt for me the process of buying the house into which I was about to move into the following day.
I complemented this with a diagram of my emotions, as portrayed during the summer project, which I stuck to the studio walls.
Earlier on that week we had tackled an exercise involving taking an object apart and I had ended up “taking myself apart”, inspired my Michael Landy’s work. I was trying to continue with this exercise on the walls of the studio, while at the same time creating a device.
I also tried to use some of the concepts that we had just been taught about cubism in our first Contextual Studies lecture.
The machine ended up working quite well even if it was quite low-fi – I made it out of one of the boxes that I was using for packing – and I even made use of the plastics workshop.
