These are some pieces i created at the start of 2nd year in sculpture. I am interested in the notion of a 'book'. I wanted to experiment with materials i hadnt used before such as glass and resin. My inspiration for this project came from old books as they are mundane objects however capture time and memory in each and every page. This lead to my decision of using brown resin for the resin book as i found it had ethemereal qualities and reflects the pages within an old book yellowing as they age.
My interests are based on the book form, rather than text within the book. I want the viewer to interpret the work in their own individual way, however see past the text as this is not the main emphasis of my sculptures. Here i have made positive and negative casts of the open book showing my interest in the depth and shape of the object.
