Today I set up my work as it stands now, in the studio for the formative assessment. It was a useful exercise as I learned several things:
- I need a lot more space than I first envisioned if I am to present my work this way in the exhibiton at the end of the year.
- My mixed media work of the girl and the beast will look great if it is much bigger. I have sourced some quotes and I think I will get it printed onto a wrapped canvas, in at least A2 size.
- Given more space I think shadows could work really well even with ambient lighting, depending where I am in the gallery.
- I need to do the technical research to ensure that my trees and trophy are stable once installed. For the formative I relied on masking tape.
Anyhow, here are the images, the trophy of course has a way to go, but on the whole I am please that I have a clear vision of what my final work will be like.
