2D Experiment

Further explorations at school and home.

Home experiments; bring out the scientist in me!

 

P_20160831_205442 Express Hurt/Sadness using alcohol wipes, tissue and cotton wool .

P_20160831_203642Putting another newsprint on top and rolling over it using wall paint roller!

IMG-20160911-WA0027[1]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.

P_20160827_100857

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

P_20160831_223536

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 )

IMG-20160911-WA0012[1]

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

P_20160904_132416

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.

P_20160904_161556

Trying out of different ink colour. White will fade as it break down into light grey in diffusion from oil to water.

P_20160904_164151

Like the glow of cooking oil against the light. Thought of using it for attraction

P_20160906_100437_1

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

IMG-20160911-WA0041[1]

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.

IMG-20160911-WA0046[1]

Failed piece. Look dull and flat.

P_20160912_051423[2]

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!

P_20160907_003132(1)

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.

P_20160908_004116

Glue is coated before adding paint through syringe. Love the gentle flowing line and bubbles.

P_20160908_004430

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!

 

P_20160908_033828

White vinegar with oil. The result is not that striking as compared to black ink on white paper.

IMG-20160911-WA0056[1]

Experimenting on the introverts’ emotion using white ink on black paper.

IMG-20160911-WA0059[1]

Exploring on love, affection for extroverts

IMG-20160911-WA0018[1]

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.

Monoprinting 1

First lesson on monoprinting.

Doesnt know what to expect, so i brought lots of things that could not be used in machine press.

Things that i brought: chocolate bar ( the sides have jagged pattern), wire ball dish scrub, spinning top, mini toy car, sponge, feather and leaves and twigs that i got on the way to school.

Rolling on the linomat to get an even coating. Reminded of wall painting

 

P_20160818_110059

First try! So curious how its gonna look!

P_20160822_004812_1[1]

Thought i did something wrong only to know i have to do reverse mono-print

P_20160822_004858_1[1]

Not bad for 1st time. Like the small burst of light at the bottom that look like sparkler. Amazed at how the sandy twigs that i picked up create such an unexpected surprise

Leaf imprint

P_20160818_111448[1]

Achieved with the brown string in the lab

Here are two of my favorite pieces. Both have the gradient effect and were done through machine press.

P_20160822_004141

Wires that drop out from dish scrub look like moving microorganism in the print.

Using plastic wrap and leftover string imprint from previous monoprint, the focus is at the plastic print leading to the slight visible trail of the strings.

This made me think that i can control the emphasis and tone i want on the subject by playing with the amount of imprint i get from it.

Other important things to note are the control of pressure and the choice of medium to get the imprint.
