This week in MEDA302, I decided to shift my concept from last week with the televisions. I decided to experiment with a different medium as in order to make the televisions look impressive I would have had to source multiple televisions which then meant more projectors and it would have ended up looking messy and ultimately unachievable.
This week I worked with the idea of using packing tape to make sculptures. I’ve decided to work on the human form by utilising mannequin parts. I began by taping the torso of the mannequin sticky side up, and then another six layers sticky side down. I then cut a seam and slid the tape cast off the mannequin. I sticky taped the seam back together in order to complete the packing tape torso. My plan is to create three of these bodies, each varying in body lengths (torso, mid thigh, full body).
