This year’s project was to have an idea which was simple, colourful and maybe slightly thought provoking. There was no outright conclusive plan of what was going to be the outcome. The idea of obtaining materials was based on availability and affordability and since plastic bottles, coffee cups, pasta, Barbie dolls, straws, soft drink cans and many more discarded items were so readily collectable with no or little expense, these items became the ideal source of supply for this project.
It began with the idea of the collection itself, of being many of the same things. Then the merging of them into one item into a form or shape that is not to conceal what they are but maybe to manipulate them as an attempt to lose their purpose and identity for a better visual solution. However, the commercialism essence of them has not evaporated and these used and unwanted items are now still only waste.
