I really enjoyed silkscreen printing as i had to create 3 templates and create 3 colours to make my image. The print came out well and i really like how the lines are not perfect but adds character to the print and every-time you make it, it will always be slightly different.
Using old or not wanted objects i created four mini maquettes by dismantling the object so that it doesn't look like its original form. Using different joining mechanisms such as wire i was able to create new shapes and forms. These maquettes can then be designed into products such as a chair or lamp.
We had to draw an object however we didn't know what the object was. It was placed into a bag and just using our hands we had to represent the texture of the object but the mark we used. At first I started to draw from my imagination and not what i was touching! So i put tracing paper and started again and was more successful.
Using different drawing machines such as a toothbrush you can create lots of interesting a unique marks. The mark can add texture to the drawing allowing you to create your own style. The first four photos i created using mono-prints, charcoal, thread and a toy car dipped into ink to create new marks on the page to represent my journey to collage.
