Cover page of my hard copy journal. It is a compilation of the research and techniques I did throughout the assignment.
Flipping the pages til its at the experimentation technique of Decalcomania/Rohrsachach Test. After trying out one that was lacking of ink (and drips of water), I tried out with blobs of ink on the paper and then pressing it down and getting bold effects.
Experimentation technique of splattering (or dripping) paint inspired by artist Jackson Pollock. I actually find the technique therapeutic as it took away the frustrations I was having during the time. I ended up feeling slightly relaxed right after. And then I did it again…
Experimentation technique of Froissage using chalk pastel instead of soaking the paper with ink. I like how the tone complements the creases and from afar it look more like a mosaic.
This page consists of planning of how I would come about collaging the sets of monoprints. These lines drawn were referred from Ed Moses’ artworks — how the lines are placed etc.
This is an overview of the emotions and some reflection I did about trying to sort the lines with the emotions.
This shows 3 out of 18 lines interpreted and sharing of the techniques used for the various strips. (There are more of the strips in the hard copy journal itself only that I took a few)
“A Line is a dot that went for a walk.”
Throughout the assignment, I made full use of the layout pad to compile everything I have done into the hard copy journal. It consists of doodling, inspiration images I captured, the different experimentation of automatic techniques, and personal reflection based on research and consultation.
The line definitely went for a walk last Friday during submission and it’s not coming back anytime soon.
