1. Cut woven fabric into a circle, dip in fabric stiffener, and press into plastic cup mold.
2. Dip a strand of linen into fabric stiffener, and hang vertically to dry.
3. Attach the dried string to the bottom of the stiff fabric mold..and see if it will support the fabric. Fail!
4. Try, try again...after unsuccessfully searching for starch or something else to use to make the string hard, I decided to experiment with resin. I wanted to try to avoid using something so toxic..but if it works, it works!
For this project, I am experimenting with the idea of multiples. How creating a lot of the same, simple structure can completely change the way it is experienced and viewed. The structures that I am making will look somewhat flower-like..and they are also going to look like the "stem" that is supporting the flower shouldn't actually be able to do so...still having some technical difficulties with the material, but I will get something to work eventually! I am going to scan in my sketches for this project so it will make a little more sense.
