Today I wanted to continue on with my bathroom pieces. I wanted to see what it would be like to project an image on the surface of water, as I was interested in it transparency and movement, I am intrigued by the idea of an image being present but not entirely perceptible. In these bath water pieces I used flour as a way of making the surface of the water opaque, so the image would be partially projected onto it. As I soon found out this only really works when the flour in the water was able to settle on the surface. But as the flour became wetter and wetter it sank into the cloudy water the image was no longer projected on it. This meant I was able to capture some images at the beginning of the work but as we played around and rippled the surface the image soon disappeared. I originally wanted to get in the water and create an interaction between my really human body and the projected animal body, but by the time I was in the water all the flour had become cloudy and the images were no longer projecting. Not that I'm really upset about this as I discovered yesterday I didn't really like my own physical body in the work as much. I much prefer these illusive human/animal forms in the space where the body would be rather than directly on the body.
This is last one is the result of me being within the bath once all the flour had sunk and I hate it!
