From the pictures below it will show the images with mini descriptions `and my thoughts about them.
Bird cage filled with rubbish
Where I modified by reorganizing the bird cage a little bit by adding the gluing of the ripped pages from my old books then adding half of the strings around the frames of the bird cage until I could not anymore; the strings got so tangled that I thought maybe it’s better half-finished as this is supposed to be more rubbish art.
As for the inside of the bird cage, I filled up of random objects and things to make it look as if rubbish in a bird cage as if it’s an abandonment out of control trash that has been built up in a trap or cage seeming like depression. I thought maybe if it were to be used as some sort of lighting as something dramatic, by hanging it up on a ceiling; shadows may reveal a new level. This, I decided, I’ll develop further another time.
Random paper, plastic, and magazines rolled up and stacked in the glass jar. White paint (matt) poured into the glass jar and stuck onto the recycling wooded board just to make it more modern perhaps. I find this is weak but this is still processing one step at a time
Trash in boxed frames
My next pieces are the magazine ripped up and put in a box frame. I like the way that it changes from trash to something artsy in a frame.
The rubbish in the box creates a different point of view when the front and back are sitting on the table, although it could hang on the wall as well. I’ve made few of them and put on the wall in the action space in which I’ll discuss later. However, I think as I want to make a project about trash arts I feels as if this is too artsy but definitely, this could in theory be made and sold or encourage more about ways to recycle instead of wasting it by throwing it into the bin with the things you can’t recycle. However the photos on the left side is just a test for the portfolio.
I’ve explore other mixed media of the puzzles in which I had one going. I might do something different than it – it just came to me to just stack them up and glue them together. So one for standards, by simply stacking and PVA gluing on top of my old basic wooded stand from the CDs or DVDs shelves. Another of my old simple VHS box set of Laurel and Hardy repainted added with paper from books, a stand, and stacked in a box like a city. The fallen one represents the one of the falling building. For future reference, I’m interested to build on a bigger scale with many more puzzles to make it bigger for my next exhibition later this year.
Ceramic room test
For the two of them, I did a test in the ceramic room and had a go of combining my rubbish and plaster. Because of my inspiration of Jack Henry who made the bigger version than this but mixed other stuff that stuck rubbish together; such as cement, domestic plaster etc. So what if I tried it without the colored paints but use plasters to combine with my rubbish in which I tested them out as you see in the photos. The first try was with the cds but to me it seem too clean as I poured it into a block, so one the next trials I splatted it with my hands on a small piece looking a lot more junky and I’m pleased with the results. I like it better because it looks more trashy yet arty at the same time. So I thought as for the end of ODS , I’d make bigger version and make as many more as I can. On the next blog, I’ll show in documents how I made it the way I did.
