Experimental Surfaces II


Part B

Inspiration research #1

Looking at overlapping patterns, also adding and removing areas of paint – continued study of home spaces, rubbings from textured surfaces and including negative space, layers and block colours with different opacity levels.

Inspiration research #2

Using objects as brushes or stamps. Allowing paint to flow freely for further development into experimental randomised patterns.

I have also been experimenting with solid textured colours, torn edges and conductive (electric) paint for my Sculpture major. I’m currently in the process of creating an interactive sculpture that plays audio files when the conductive paint sections are touched.

There is a bit to think about when using electric paint in regards to design. Here is some research around patterns and designs for using this medium:
