The following work was inspired by a set of dominoes.
The title for this project was Household Geometrics and I found the MoDiP collection particularly inspiring because I hadn't seen or had access to many of the items within the collection before. The main theme that continued throughout my work was dominoes, which I first drew from the collection, using a continuous line, which softened them, and gave the piece more flow, contrasting against the geometrical aspect of the dominoes. The geometry in my sampling came from the weaves opposed to the dominoes, which were integral to the texture of the pieces.
I began this project by drawing images from the MoDiP collection, which included a set of dominoes and some household appliances. The dominoes inspired me the most when I cut my drawings out individually and collaged them on top of one another. This gave me the general geometric floral shape that I continued to use in all my samples. I enjoyed using paper for this unit, as I was able to bend and curl the paper to the exact form I wanted. The techniques I used were successful and I am continuing to use them in my current project to enable me to explore this even further.
