IMOOS and Box Making Workshop


The or part of the learning for relational colour we have been given lectures filled with useful artists, this lecture was inspired by Bryan Wynter and the IMOOS, “images moving out of space”

This is a set up of all the colour holders in a row!



The next part of the day was to split into mixed discipline groups and create boxes that are similar to the colour holders we made before and also similar to the IMOOS, the boxes were rather large so required us to work as a team to create.


The two photos above show the during and the after of the process of making the boxes, the progress was really inspiring as its probably one of the larger size pieces I’ve ever made.  The box now needs to be painted and also designs need to be made for the pieces we will put inside.
