Sheet Sculptures

Sheet Sculptures

PRODUCTION Student Work, Grammar School, 2012

The Brief was to follow the direction of the photographer Spencer Tunick, who uses the body as just another form of art in public. The only difference being, was that we had to cover the bodies, rather then leave them uncovered. I found Spencer's idea of anonymity in public, on which I tried to focus, very intriguing. I played a lot with the folds of the sheet, as if carving a sculpture. The result of the performance was a lot of fun, as one got to hear many interesting comments from surprised viewers and tourists. In turn, we encountered many unpredictable and funny situations.

Secret Garden

Secret Garden

PRODUCTION 2012

This shot resembles my childhood in summer. The garden seemed magical at that time and each day the scenery changed. With its out-of-focus foreground the photo should emphasize the aspect of running through the garden, always finding new paths to lead on and always being excited to see where the adventure in the flower fairy garden ends, giving it a secret and mysterious tone.
