Following last week’s work, I took these objects and looked at the past, present and future. Looking at either their materials, history, and what they could be made into, I have created A2 pieces expressing these.
Tunic from “12 unwearable dresses” (1967) by Pace Rabanne, I was first bought to this piece by the shine of the metal material. I was interested by how they created shadows and highlights through the squares of the tunic. Following this I looked at how and where the materials were sourced from and what the dress could be recycled into.
Full Grown Chair (2017) by Gavin Munro, after viewing this I researched how the chair was made which made me look at the details of the wood. I explored different limits of the chair throughout the A2 piece, looking at branches so where it came from. Then to its purpose using it for clothes, books and sitting. I drew a little sketch of my home with where the chairs are.

Light Fighting (1902) by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this piece uses different materials for different light shadows across a room. I love the pink and purple glass panes, which reminded me of glass windows in a church and the coloured light coming down from them. I thought about where the light came through the different ideas of it and the use.
