As an aside, I noticed that I had a lot of comments about the background used for my assignment 3 sculptures – a wooden board scratched through it’s previous use as a board for concreting on! In my photographs of the sculptures, the background had become an integral part of the sculpture itself. I decided therefore to do some experiments with the background and see what a difference changing it meant.

IMG_5758Wow, what a difference!

The background can make or break these sculptures. Something to think about. Maybe I could paint the background on aluminium backgrounds and bolt the shelves to that?

    Wow, Mark, that is really interesting. I suppose the idea that the physical site for a sculpture has an impact shouldn’t really come as such a surprise, but the difference is amazing.
