The term interdisciplinary covers a wide variety of Art and Design disciplines; as a group of practitioners we found it extremely hard to differentiate as to which specialist area we position ourselves:
Members of this group:
Please keep returning to the blog to see the work of these practitioners and see how they relate to the following:
The headings or titles we would give our practices and to highlight our interests are:
'Materiality: The stuff of Value' and 'Body Objects'
However each of these headings could incorporate Sculpture, Fashion, Jewellery, Adornment, Film, Metal, Ceramics and Glass, while also concentrating on natural forms, contrasting with functional objects. While considering different materials and disciplines our overall aim is to create a relationship between the wearer, the piece and the viewer.
Work of other Art & Designers is of extreme interest, we can analyse their forms and understand their meaning or concept; it is important to bridge the gap between the concept and the actual object.
The links below will hopefully give you an insight into other Artist & Designers that are influencing our current project work:
