"The colours reminded me of sushi.." is one element of this larger body of work, for which the starting point was the seductive, vacuum form packaging of a hose attachment from a DIY store. My processes explored and extrapolated the impressive and complete arch shape chosen to present the merchandise as well as the shiny, organic surface of the vacuum formed plastic.
My decision making processes indulged in the possibilities of both the material as well as the possible meanings of the work while the original object was being repeatedly altered and reproduced in the studio.
Ultimately, with its seductive material qualities, the work becomes a collage of surface, form and pictures in the mind. By highlighting and disrupting the usual flow of visual information designed for everyday purpose, this work is intended to investigate the theatre of designed obects we surround ourselves with.
