We arrived to studio this morning and were presented with the task of coming up with a pitch in 15 minutes to present to the rest of the studio to convince the other groups to invest in our project.
We wrote out a pitch and all spoke about what connected with us most.
Standing amongst the chaos, overwhelmed by the beauty of nature. On first look this community of species internally consumes the architectural integrity. But as you start to mover around the space and start to really experience it you realise they coexist in such a beautifully chaotic but harmonious way.
Our installation represents the sightings and experiences (both visual and emotional) had within the tropical glasshouse, yet without the humid climate. It allows viewers to be amongst the organic nature and coloured tones of plant life in a metaphorical and abstract way.
To transpose what we’ve collected as a group. We took the colour pallets retractions of the water and the way the light passes through the glasshouses textures and colours in our environment and how that could change the way we not only see the gardens but also internalise them. The elevations and suspension of the jars are based at singular points much like plant to soil giving space for our projection to pass through.
The installation was intended to be visualised and created in an Urban environment. It represents a metaphor of the winter gardens represented in a way that directly referenced attributes of nature but not Visually distinguished by usual characteristics. Eg colours of the gardens, water, reflection, the projection, Hanging plants, hanging bottles etc
We discussed our project up to this point and decided that it needed something more, The bottles were cool but we felt we could take it further. So we got red, blue, yellow and black food colouring and played around with them to create colours that make you feel like you were in the gardens.
