THE MAGIC OF ELECTRICITY
For a first year project - Icons - I investigated masks as part of rituals in New Guinea, I wanted to explore whether I could translate the magic of those rituals into something that might also have validity in contemporary society. In the first trimester of the second year I continued to work on the theme within the frame of the theme ‘Ecstasy’, and tried to evoke the magic of various high tech devises, things we don’t necessarily see but experience intensely. Electricity, for instance, is powerfully present in our daily lives, but usually we take it for granted that things simply work, that a lamp simply functions.
First year and second year projects, 2016; will develop into Graduation Project in 2017
