My drawing is progressing:
This is it in the A3 layout for my magazine/portfolio. The white lines have changed to wisps of smoke approaching the ceiling, which indicate: waiting, smoking, kissing, eating, shopping, buying tickets and meeting. The smoke is categorised by line weight and opacity. I need to label them. This is deliberately containing the characteristics of the first drawing (labelled layers) to give it some dialogue with the progressing moments of pause, but adapted to the new site.
I drilled a piece of marble:
The back has broken apart quite a bit, but the front held surprisingly well (especially as Joel and Ray in the workshop had similar reactions of it not working!). This was done using masonry drill bits. I’m working out what to actually put in the holes.
Another attempt at the bench model:
The rear section of the supports is still too thin, so there’s a high possibility they will snap again when I take off the formwork. I’ll see what happens tonight and alter the design accordingly – at a larger scale it would be fine, but the detail is just too small at 1:10 unfortunately.
The copper sulphate has arrived! Exciting!
