The Brief titled ‘What is it?’ divided into three parts, named: A, B and C. Part ‘A’ titled ‘LOOKING, ’ set the task to visit a minimum of five museums of London and record the visits as detailed as possible. Further, should we choose two objects from these visits and find as much information as we could gather about them.
The second part ‘Speculation + Research’ constructed on the first one, requested to find a link between the two chosen objects, which might be unexplored until now. From here should we produce a shared future for them, coexisting? The last part ‘C’ was titled as ‘BOOK’. It asked to show the future we created in a publication, which should match precise criteria.
My book constructed on the objects (a timepiece and honeycombs) explores the connection between time and pattern in nature. Titled as the ‘Golden Thread’, does the book present ten patterns found in nature, each pattern accompanied by a caption describing the design and its evolution – from water and bacteria to animals conclude with humans. The final part of the book presents my final piece a sculpture that shows the never-ending process of evolution, the endless process of building and ‘fixing’.
