Artist's Description

I’ve been experimenting again!
Lets go through the steps.
I rummaged through the campus scrap yard and found a rusting box about 50×50 cm and about 30cm deep. and a few small sheets of different rusting metals.I took these to the print room, shacked the sheets of metal so the rust stayed put (i hope) and dirtied one of them up with some black paint and bitumen, when they dried, i screen printed a drawing onto them in white, (the drawing is here and here’s the Model ) then when they dried, I put them in the rusting box, arranging them to make the image again.

Next I plan to rivet the pieces in place letting them have space under each layer to give the collage more dimension. Then I’ll be giving the box a stand like an old television set. After which, if I have time, and money, I’ll be adding a UV tube lamp into the box, hidden inside, facing the image, so that when the light turns on, it picks up the white and makes the image glow.
