- The part of playing with light and how it changes your objects looks interesting, you could try to experiment combining the art of light with your current idea. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend anything (at the moment tho) for reading or researching, but Tate Modern is displaying now some exhibitions about women if art and I think there should be something useful for you and your idea. Well done!
- Archaeological- look at archaeologists and what has previously been found
- Objects are supposed to be dead- bringing the objects back to life, what is my take on bringing them back to life
- Links between bones and racial/equality themes, how does it link and why? Bones are always white no matter what your race, developing this link
- Game- talk to people who make games, as I have no knowledge of it
- 1 ARE OBJECTS SPECIFIC, SELECTED PURPOSEFULLY TO YOUR PRACTICE?
2 WHAT IS THE RELATION BETWEEN THE FOUND OBJECTS AND THE SYMBOLISM IN REPRESENTING YOUR THEORY IN QUESTION; CLASSISM, RACISM AND SEXISM?
3 IS THE LOCATION OF THE THAMES SPECIFICALLY SELECTED, OR IS THERE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE MORE LOCATIONS IN FOUND OBJECTS?
4 IN YOUR WORK, YOU RE-APPROPRIATE CHANGING THE STATES OF THE ORIGINAL THROUGH DIFFERENT PURPOSES, IS THIS TO CHANGE PERCEPTION AND IDENTITY. OF ONE OBJECT, BUT PRESENTING IT IN NEW LIGHTS TO QUESTION THE VIEWER’S INTERPRETATION?
5 IN CASTING OBJECTS IN VARIED METHODS, WHITE IS USED COLOUR. IN RELATION TO RACISM, IS THIS SYMBOLIC FOR THE ARYAN RACE- WHICH THE NAZIS FOUND AS THE SUPREME THE “STRONG” RACE. IS WHITE USED TO THEREFORE REPRESENT THESE ISSUES AS YOU DISCUSS COLOUR TO EVOKE AND REFLECT THESE MATTERS?
6 WHAT IS THE END GOAL OF THE PROJECT, IN RELATION TO WHAT ARE YOU AIMING TO ACHIEVE OVERALL, INTENTIONS?
7 YOU CONDUCTED A SURVEY, IN DOING SO HOW WILL THIS HELP SUPPORT AND GUIDE YOUR PRACTICE E.G. THE PURPOSE?
8 YOU GO FROM FOUND OBJECTS TO WRITTEN ILLUSTRATIONS, IS THE MATERIALITY OF YOUR WORK SIGNIFICANT AND CONTEXT?
9 CLEANING HISTORY AWAY- BLEACHING AND CLEANSING PROCESS OF THE FOUND OBJECTS.
- Kat I love the way you are focusing on objects
- Kat – A contrasting range of themes, includes the tangible object and the sociological dimension. I am looking forward to seeing how these threads might perhaps be woven together in subsequent projects.
- When you coated all of it in white it reminded me of this work:
- You showed an interesting path of regenerating found objects, the vacuum pieces catched my attention for sure, I think the bone-light videos are captivating. I would like to get more insight what your reasoning behind these works are. I found that bit by bit in your really personal blog-texts. Respect! There from I do understand your intent behind the video game concept. In a way it feels many things are parallel to each other. I wonder if you could integrate for instance the vacuum pieces and the bone-light imageries into the game and so on?
- As having a conversation with Kat before, i like the enthusiasm and curiosity she has to try on new materials, and techniques. The vacuum you made create a dialogue of the materials you used to create your artwork with the objects you picked from riverside.
- I just see your new macro photos of the found objects, very captivate! How do you feel and found the structure, textures you found through the macro view? What kind of materials presentation can you try on developing through these macro textures?
- I also think that the way how the artworks are presented in future, the context it is present (open or closed space), all these will definitely affect your future installation.
- Keep up the vibes Kat and I love your work!
- It would be interesting how you can further explore the theme of time and light, sunrise & sunset – maybe research into heritage sites like Stonehedge, Hypogeum, Ggantija.
- Kat – I’m really impressed with the range of technical skills you have developed so far, and your early experimentation with the vacuum forming in particular. I’m pleased to see that I’m not the only one who manages to break things. My mum told me the other day about SLIders, and people who’s electromagnetic energies cause technology around them to become disturbed. She reckons she is one, and although I’m not sure I believe it, it might be fun to do a project around. I’m not really sure what your project is about, or how some of the work you have been doing links with your ideas around feminism, so this might be something to consider honing in on. So far, your experiments seem cool, but a bit random. I’m not really familiar with what you do, so that is just my understanding from watching your video.
- Kat I like the way you tries to change the form of the item you picked in the river and also the idea with micro-lens and the light moving. It just like making the object alive again. And I’m just thinking maybe can also make use of those items picked in river to reproduce a new work(?)
- From looking at her blog she does reference Rachael Whiteread- which you can see the reference with the casts
- your video was interesting giving footage of actual making – appreciated
- the bones are the most interesting – video pieces are mesmerising
- For me I reference surreal terrains and scapes
- I wanted to hear more about the Game. Try Unity.
- it takes it out of context- away from the subject- to a more abstract was great also seeing the videos- producing works fantastic processes
- Your vacuum packed work reminded me of something another one of my students have been working with recently. Shes collecting rubbish, similar to yourself, and then coating them in a block of resin. The effect is really amazing, she’s jam-packed the container with as much colour, textured rubbish and the resin makes it a permanent piece of work. Frozen in time almost. Just be careful where you use the resin, its toxic and the fumes are bad.
- Kat how you find the items and manage to restore them and select the items is both brave and truly captivating it was a pleasure meeting you at the low Residency and actually seeing these items ! Some date back hundreds of years . I like how you showed us the process and different ways of using such items. Good job and really interesting to see the direction you will take with this
- Thought you might be interested in that http://sonialevy.net/hvalreki.html
- I forgot to mention! The bacteria could be something you could look into??
Thank you for all your feedback everyone!
