Architecture of the photographic print: the spatial and dimensional relations between photography, print and architecture
A practice-led enquiry into the spatial and dimensional relations between photography, print and architecture.
Opening up the Wig: An exploration of the wig using photographic and sculptural strategies to reveal the relationships between the wig, the self, society and the construction of female identities.
My practice is situated in the intersection between sculpture and studio-based photography and will employ a range of strategies to unpack the function and definition of the wig, and interrogate the social context that currently produces and values it. This will involve investigating both the intention of the wig - representing, idealising and projecting the ‘feminine’ - and its material origins - the physicality of it and the cultural context that produces it. The female wig in particular offers a space for public and private ideas of femininity to interact. Women’s wigs can act as a metonym for the female body as both an artificial construct (the ideal female body), and an absence (the intended wearer, or, in the case of natural hair, the persons whose hair it was).
How Can Youth Be Celebrated Through Sculpture in the Public Realm?
This practice lead research investigates way in which sculpture can represent young people in the public realm. Whereby both, the public space of the municipal exhibition space and the public space of an urban park are investigated.
The Human Body as a Building Architectural Colossi and their Metaphors
The research will be based on the relation of human body and architectural structures; especially how the human body has been the inspiration for the exterior shape of several architectural human colossi and how it was used as a building itself.
