Plans, artist research and reflections with regards to all my work produced in my second year of university.
H F Gardner Artwork
Here, I am experimenting morphing between different statue postures exploring the different:
- direction of movement
- angles of viewing
- movements that make gender distinguishable
I have found that:
- the most effective and interesting dynamics are slow sustained movements between the positions.
- i chose to direct the movement in a way that aimed to tell 'what happened after the painting was taken', an expansion of the scene caught in still image.
- a variety of angles is best as this way the audience get an individual interpretation of my movements.
- muscular tension and direct/downward focus indicates male gender whereas softness in limbs and indirect/upward focus indicates female gender.
- positions that create curves in the body connote femininity whereas positions that fill out curves and create rhombus-like shapes tend to connote masculinity.
