Recent Visit to Eden Project
When ever I go on holiday I always have at hand my camera. Taking pictures for me is a two fold process. 1/ A record can be kept of where I have been and family memories, taking pictures of interesting objects helps with future ideas. 2/ By using a camera I have found that I really have to observe what is around me and as such can train myself to see things thatI did not.
Here are some pictures taken from my visit. The first pictures are of a sculpture made entirely from discarded rubbish/junk. For me it respresents the monstor that we ourselves create and inflict on our planet. It also is a fine example of how powerful statements can be created by using objects that we would not normally perhaps think about incorporating in our work.
Note the discarded computer mice used for the teath. Taking time to have a look to see what other items have been used is interesting and has given me a few ideas.
The remaining pictures are items that I found interesting with regards to form, texture and colour.
