This week i began to have a play with materials. I started off my doing some very basic experiments with wire, tiny bits of sheet metal and wire mesh/chicken wire mixed with stuffed tights.
These where very basic versions of the sort of thing i have been sketching, just to get my ideas into a physical state to see where i could develop these to next.
I liked the results of these, particularly where the metals actually begin to manipulate the tights and alter their shapes, however there were no surprises, they kind of looked exactly as i thought they would... but as a basic starting point i am happy and it was good to do something practical after all the reading i have been doing.
Here are a few examples of samples i thought worked well...
