Lend me your ear.....

Quick, quick this fun show is coming down on the 1st of April.........(i'm on time with this announcement woo!). Don't be deceived by the size of the display cabinet as this show has been huge with 38 maker exploring lending ears!?
I don't know if i had more fun thinking of and making the postcard or the earring either way I totally enjoyed creating with Part B.

Dear Jessica,

When hearing about this opportunity to lend an ear(s) I knew you would have a stream of hot contenders and i would just like to say thank you so much for choosing my lobes. I feel very privileged to be the one to exhibit such amazing artworks. My ensemble is now complete.

Love hearts,

Figment...(whoops 2010)

Hmmm, so I have some catching up to do.... anyhow....
Figment was an exhibition developed and launched by e.g.etal about this time last year. E.g.etal transformed into a city of bright lights and shadows. They pushed the normal displaying traditions and displayed the artworks on projectors which beamed beautiful silhouettes onto the gallery walls. Interesting and hot (in temperature not in a Paris Hilton way)!

Above are the silhouettes of my drawings and pieces (but not the two silhouettes furthest to the right). It felt a little revealing to see your sketches not only on display but huge and on the wall. Although i must say i did cringe when i saw my drawings so there naked on the wall to share with everyone, i did like the connection of the projected images and my concept for the body of work, 'Day Dreaming'. Yes very dreamy.
Although i haven't included any clear images of the work stay tuned as i am continuing to develop this body of work so i will save them up for another time not so far from now.
