I spent the afternoon playing with my ‘light box’ [a desk lamp under a glass coffee table] while I worked on one of the tasks from the college session I missed in January because of the snow. [I was going to type ‘way back in January’ until I realised it was only last month – so much has happened in the meantime!]
The first task, which I did a while ago, before the great deadline trauma, was to make marks on tracing paper to sounds. Not knowing what the real sounds should have been, I found ‘Late Junction’ on BBC I-player. The programme is strongly recommended if you like your music quirky.
Interesting, but I'm not sure I can go anywhere with them. The next step is supposed to be a collage inspired by the tracings, but – er – they don’t inspire me.
So I tried scanning the tracing paper in various combinations. Not sure I see a collage in there – but I see lots of stitch-like marks.
Perhaps an embroidered collage?
