Immerse

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact

Abstract

Drawing directly from the natural landscape Immerse is the outcome of an investigation into the direct visual representation of soil erosion. I was inspired by how the soil eroded into organic forms and then filled with water to visually appear as silver in the field. I applied the same outline directly in silver as I was interested in questioning how the object is defined on a smaller, more precious scale. The outcome is a series of 3 sterling silver bowls which can be placed as the user desires on the table. The research for this piece is also interested in the utilization of the object. How the user interacts with them, do they have a function, how the user places them on the table? As with much of my work part of the research continues after the object is created. This is documented by taking notes with users and photographing how galleries and end users display my work.
