We took inspiration from the filmwork ‘The Way Things Go’ by Fischili and Weiss, and made moving sculptures from found objects.
We looked at Pedro Reyes’ Disarm to examine how something beautiful could be created from something destructive and ‘ugly’. After making drawings from objects collected from a car junk yard we explored the work of Richard Tuttle to discuss texture and use of materials.
The children made collograph plates using a variety of found textured materials.
The work shown is a collaborative composition based on our imaginary machines.
