In this project of lines, i experimented with various means and methods of
making lines and compositions using a variety of unusual materials and tools. Using
these methods, i attempted to capture the essence of 18 emotions, and repeated
the process until i achieved the desired result.
Top 3 Favourites
Anxious – In order to capture anxiety, I emulated the actions of a person in a
flustered state,and proceeded to scratch the lino block coated with block ink
with my fingernails, creating a very scratched, damaged appearance. Like a
person scratching his forehead in panic.
Aggressive – The feeling of oppression, of being taking over is what i was attempting to
capture with this piece, by using a toilet paper coated in block ink, and wiping it across
paper in a smooth motion, like a tidal wave. A silent, yet powerful aggression.
Lyrical – Flowing, fluid and undulating, like musical notes. That was the emotion i
attempted to grasp using the method of twisting tissue paper on ink. This created a wavy circle
like appearance, like sound waves bouncing off each other.
