Further explorations at school and home.
Home experiments; bring out the scientist in me!
Express Hurt/Sadness using alcohol wipes, tissue and cotton wool .
Putting another newsprint on top and rolling over it using wall paint roller!
Turn out to be a complete fail because i use acrylic paint as the base so it dry up fast. Only the alcohol wraps is shown. i reused the blank space at the bottom and try out other mediums like sponge.
Used a spinning top. The sharp line strokes that fly out in a circular manner reminded me of sparkler. I associated this to amazement.
Rolling my toy car over the paper. Noticed the line is vivid in the start and slowly fade out with grid mark across.
It is done using dish wire scrub to create a swirl. The lines created some are very thin and some are thick with a bit of wobbly. Confusion is seen here as the unsteadiness of the mind.
LOTS OF GLUE- the mixture of tears and mucus. First line ink is spread using toothpick, second uses wire dish scrub, third uses cotton ball. Exploring Sadness.
Dried appearance of glue. Like how its translucent sometime and create textured surface on the paper. I brought this piece to show Miss Joy during group consultation and she suggested i look into the properties of paper. So did I in my later stages of experiment!
Throwing of materials- Anger/ Rage
Result turn out disappointing because i wanted to see splatter brought out by throwing things.
Brought this up on group consultation and decided to reduce the amount of water and use more ink to get a bolder mark. (Suggested by Alyssa )
Got the result i wanted! It definitely look angry to me now! Tried out rolling the balls on the paper too.
Preparing to cultivate mould on paper for Disgust
Top 4 strips uses mascarpone cheese with different paper material and amount of water added to it. Lastly is overripe banana peel.
Forgotten to take photo of the end result after a few days. Basically the cheese didn’t rot after a few days which was against my expectation because it has the most moulds spotted compared to the other food in the youtube video. Self-experiment is really important. The banana peels on the bleedproof paper rot fast, turning complete black and leave lots brownish tiny spots on where it was. The inner side of the peels were still a bit moist. Cartridge paper did not have quite a good result as the banana peels have dried off making it hard to remove from the paper. It didn’t rot as fast as the one on bleeding paper too.
Bread moulds result was stunning, exactly how i wanted it to be in a short frame of 3 days.
First try with cooking oil and water. Viscosity and diffusion applied. Like the effect of how ink particles doesn’t spread in oil while water does the exact opposite. Such an interesting result on one piece of paper.
Trying out of different ink colour. White will fade as it break down into light grey in diffusion from oil to water.
Like the glow of cooking oil against the light. Thought of using it for attraction
Love the tiny vibrations on the thin line.
Wish i could replicate out the line. However after several trials of controlling the amount of oil with water and also where to put the oil so the big blop of water can “accidentally” interact with it. It was all futile attempts…
Flowers on monoprint
Feel like longing to me. The gentle gradient background and the jarring white blank petal have such strong contrast. The image keep calling out to me to put the flowers back to its own spot.
Failed piece. Look dull and flat.
Did monoprint for many leaves to do collage.
white vinegar and oil create such interesting texture to the paper! The combination of them break up the ink molecules and freeze them leaving clusters of short frenzy lines. At some point it even look like scumbling with gradient. Definitely worth exploring more!
Saw an elephant! The body of the “elephant” remind me of brain and the frenzy line linked me up to Fear! Afterall fear is all in the state of mind!
White vinegar and soda fuzzy and produce lots of bubbles. Really feel like a science experiment now 😀 However the result leave little to desire only grainy and slight smoky effect being noticed.
Glue is coated before adding paint through syringe. Love the gentle flowing line and bubbles.
Doesn’t this look like jellyfish?! <3 The bubbles made by the syringe are too thin so it cant last long before bursting. If it work, i would definitely go for AWE!
White vinegar with oil. The result is not that striking as compared to black ink on white paper.
Experimenting on the introverts’ emotion using white ink on black paper.
Exploring on love, affection for extroverts
Lastly ending with slippers print to conclude my end of experiments for now! Hahaha! jkjk! It on rejection- getting one emotion trampled by others.
This ends my length post of images.
