Her Units series, for instance, used rectangular aluminium stands to frame weird hybrids of the raw and man-made, including polystyrene and coloured wool, sandwiched together and hung in cross-sections give the feeling like a slices of cake. The glittering black funnel, Hose, included in her current show, looks as if it's made of beads. Up close, it turns out to be woven audio-tape, bearing a recording of her work being installed. This piece of work inspired me in terms of displaying my work and also the samples inside also really interesting
In this art work she considers how throughout our lives we collect and throw away, select and discard, objects which we feel are important or irrelevant. We keep things we feel say something about us, either because they change with the passing of time, or remain the same. What is interesting for me in this piece of work, was I like the elements of different things inside the knitting pocket. Its another way of keeping and layout the collection.
Fashion Invitation Archive of Lain R.
Dries Van Noten Menswear, SS 2013 Valentino, circa 1990
Maison Martin Margiela Menswear, SS 2012 Kenzo, AW2011
I found that collecting a collection of invitation quite interesting because it does show the style and fashion statement in each season of the designer.I feel that invites are so interesting because they represent the intersection between marketing, fashion and graphic design it a combination that can represent the show.
"The invitation is the first opportunity that a designer has to share their new fashion statement to add a narrative to the style statement they are making that particular season. Their best they are a visual continuation of the creative thread that designers are wishing to share that particular season. Invitations still remain an essential part of a designer?s vocabulary/armoury and can veer from the classic and formal to the complex and conceptual. It is always exciting each season to get that first glimpse into their world."
His project using other people's unwanted objects methodically and painstakingly packed together into neat, colour co-ordinated blocks. Inspired by real life coincidences, such as two people passing each other dressed in the same outfits. I like the idea that he link between the colour together and also, the way that he arrange the object until its fit together.
Marc Mok SS2016
To create his collection of overlapping and interlocking clothes from silk-satin, cotton and scuba fabric. He also created shoes from blocks of speckled sponge that were held onto the bottom of models' feet with straps or stuck to red socks. I like the idea of combining the material together and turn to be a garment. Also, I really like the idea of shoes that he made from sponge, I remind me of reusing things to become something interesting.
He uses the traditional kite-making techniques and forms to construct his three dimensional wall works, out of thousands of hand crafted paper. The artwork embodies his longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape. I really like the way that he layout the work together it's give a sense of collection and repetition.
Desiree Laidler "Comfort"
In this project was discovering a juxtaposition between comfort and discomfort by working with two material,behind physical and psychological comfort zones. Her investigation into these comfort mediums also led her to create a new material for her project that combined foam and latex. I found this project interesting because of material that she choose to work with, because its give an interesting texture and I also like the way she combining the color which match to the key point as well.
This collection inspired by candy striped pink school uniforms and childhood toys sang out nostalgia. Punk influenced school uniforms and clothes made from brown paper were worn by models carrying giant teddies. I like the idea in terms of material and color scheme the he combining together. As we can see that the material that he work with came from our everyday object and turn to be in this collection of cloths.
She was an artist has evolved from graphic design to photography. This piece of work representing a global collection of refuse that exists within the earth’s oceans for various amounts of time. She began working on the project after reading about the Pacific Garbage Patch on the Internet, and started noticing all the trash that would wash up along the beach and the result is a kind of collage of the waste we put into the oceans. I was interesting in the way that she layout the objects that against the background to make those objects look more stand out.
Nasir Mazhar "Paper Hat"
He created the series 'Per Color' in a local supermarket in Brazil. He aimed to reveal the supermarket as a space of manipulation where customers get outwitted by colorful packaging and catchy slogans, buying products to which we've lost every natural relation to. I like the idea that he separate the each color of stuff and put it all together, this give the feeling of repetition and the way he presenting also really interesting.
Recycled glass panels are embedded with glass aggregate that is 98%-100% recycled post-industrial each panel contains glass aggregate that come from crushed bottles, plates, windows, and other recycled glade product. Because of the product and natural variation of the glass aggregate used in our recycled glass products, minor differences in color, size, shape, and density maybe apparent from one sheet to another within a single sheet.
Plastics company 3form makes translucent resin for the architecture and design.Their Ecoresin panels come in almost every color and texture imaginable, and can be customized with embedded natural material or a unique digital design. I like the way that they work featuring natural elements like leaves, grass, plant fibers and petals embedded in the resin itself.
This material has been developed around a fruit based formulae, aerated by Lili Giacobino, which is completely natural and biodegradable. Bioplastic jewelry came out of long research into sustainable solution to replace fuel base plastic. Mixing each ingredient to understand the chemical reaction of natural elements, Lili has developed an innovative bioplastic, based on corn, potato or tapioca. I really interesting in a way of turning natural material into plastic and make it usable.
Leutton Postle AW2012
In this collection she combine the technique between textile knitting and fabric. Patterns come in the form of facial features, both illustrative in knitwear and abstract in textiles. I really like the way that she combing material together to create textile base on this collection.
This project of Leonardo, he used found objects to produce this sculpture, materials such as wood, rusted iron, cotton, paper, mud that he intentionally subjects to processes of weathering, burning, oxidization, and decay. His pieces challenge the architecture of the space in which they’re shown. Memories of his childhood surroundings.
"Records were melted and sculpted to form a cascading wave, dotted with bursts of colorful labels. The resulting structure speaks to the inevitable waves of technology that render each successive generation of recordable media obsolete. The piece also aims to physically manifest the ephemerality of music as well as one man’s musical tastes, as represented by his personal record collection."
Tara Donovan creates beautiful art works with repeated taping and stacking of stationaries. The below pictures depict the group's inspirations for a skirt with recurring patterns and bubbly lightness. It's also represent a from repetition because of the pattern and how she layout the objects together. This work she inspires by re-purposing prosaic manufactured materials, such as a drinking straw, a paper plate, a Styrofoam cup into intriguing visual and physical installations.
Ish and Chi
Vibrant colours and textures are great in small spaces and across the board. Spaces that are personal and intimate are growing and moving away from simply practical gardens.
Hao’s best known photographic series will be shown, ‘my things’ are visuals made up of thousands of scanned images depicting objects from his own life. these ordinary things shown life sized are arranged and assembled by him using a computer, and represent over 20 years of accumulation on the part of the artist.
Edward Burtynsky’s photographs are haunting and beautiful records of the ravages of industrialization. He documents the environmental destruction of mining, huge piles of cast aside electronic goods, and towers of tires as far as the eye can see. He also search for subjects that are rich in detail and scale yet open in their meaning. Recycling yards, mine tailings, quarries and refineries are all places that are outside of our normal experience, on a daily basis.
Her work can be obvious as well as secretive and strange. Like a child, she can go on a bit, and at times this show gets fractious and overwrought. She shares her theatricality, and her preoccupation with the play and fantasies of childhood. But at best Messager's work is as accessible as it is sinister; as monstrous as it is funny. Children will love all the soft toy abuse, the inflatable creatures and magic seas. I like the ways that she display the soft toys on the wall, it's give a feeling of playful and fun by the way that she hang it all together.
He collecting a vast archive of paper ephemera and small objects to make his signature glass-fronted ‘shadow boxes’.These miniature masterpieces transform everyday objects into spellbinding treasures. He change the way of collecting things in a box, cabinet and etc. into a collage works. The boxes evoke the memories associated with the items contained within, while also containing parallels with, or expressing reverence for, other art forms, such as theater, ballet, and film.
Robert Opie (1940s)
Robert Opie gathered together contemporary packaging, everything from cereal boxes to cigarette packs. His mission was extended to understanding the origins and development of brands and retailing, he assembled the evidence from thousands of surviving examples of bottles, tins, labels, signs and many forms of promotional and advertising material.He structure and transitional nature of everyday life.
"It is amongst the fragments of daily living that we are psychologically and socially rooted, and this is where the impulses of our society can be found."
He creates boxes with thousands of individual specimens consisting of photographs and biographical DNA in the form of such things as hair, finger nails, scent, eye lashes, fingerprints, food, botanical elements, fabric swatches, makeup, dirt, in carefully pinned to make his amazing pieces of art. I like this artwork because of the layout itself, and details in this.
Mark Dion is an explorer, naturalist, archaeologist, botanist, historian, and artist all rolled into one. His recent art actions and museum installations have focused on archaeological by local historians.He categorized the Thames material and presented it in curiosity cabinets.Dion creates his own categories that may tell us more about contemporary culture than that of the past-color. This is interesting in terms of the layout in this display.
Cornelia Parker is a London based sculptor and installation artist. she seems to have both accepted and been determined to subvert. A lot of her art involves collaboration with serious grown up, but the result is triumphantly playful and often anarchic.I like the way that she display her artwork around the light that reflect the object onto the wall, and create an interesting shadow. It's also another way of collecting and displaying.
She deals with issues of gender desire; how the male and female identities are constructed and represented in the society and where are the borders between desirable and undesirable.She's working with video, images and objects and turn those into ready-made of art piece. Reinhard’s works have the aim and ability of arousing strong emotional states in viewers, to the point of physicality and sometime people found that its hard to understanding.The central themes of her art are gender, sexuality and its manifestations and representations, and in particular the taboos associated with female sexuality.
By looking closely at material from his studio, you can discover more about the man and the source of his ideas. The studio is divided into areas for different types of activity: desks for reading and working with paper, shelves of reference books, a large central table for modeling, and working with plaster casts, and a bunk for resting. Paolozzi was interested in a number of themes and by seeing his studio you can get an idea of the ways he worked and the inspiration he drew from the world around him. Its another way of collection that representing that artist, and how he get the inspiration in his works.
She arrangement of pastel foam left over from the production of furniture to be a sculpture, I found this work interesting for my project because she also, uses left over stuff and re-making something out of it. Also, the color combining well together. I really the texture around this sculpture it's feel very touchable and soft.
Anna Ray "Knot"
This piece of work the artist inspired from the colour coding of the metal under-wires in brassieres, the minute coloured pixels that are the building blocks of digital images and the wooden game ‘Pick up Sticks’. This had made up of machine-stitched cotton elements, stuffed with polyester filling. Over one thousand strands are knotted together, with their brightly coloured tips poking out playfully in all directions. Its also the idea of repetitions of things that created an interesting texture and the combination of color. Its make me to considering more on experimenting with new material.
Her work base on repetition of works by other artists. Sturtevant's works are not merely copies, since her aim was not to achieve an exact replica. Instead, she reconstructed them from memory, using the same techniques as the artists whom she imitated. Key to her thinking was the relationship between repetition and difference. I found this art work quite related to me because my work mostly base on relationship between material and technique.
She used found objects to dedicated to the pop art creation that inspired from Andy Warhol. Anna constructs art that will easily challenge the viewer. Each object tells a story of the fun and energy Anna puts into every project and I found that interesting because its created the shape on the body from the objects that she work with. Its also give a sense of playfulness and humour through placing unlikely objects, textures and colours in to new environments.
She used yarn, thread, fabric, and other fibers to envelop found objects into fastidiously woven, wrapped, and bundled structures. In this piece of work I really interesting in shape of it, I like the idea of three dimensional that she tried to present. Also, the swaddled forms stretch out at curious angles, while visible objects like the translucent blue of plastic tubing or spools of yarn emerge from the delicate balances of color.
Iris Van Herpen "SHOWcabinet"
In her work, fashion, science, art and technology are not separate subjects. She combine those element all together and the display also show a sense of all her works. Accompanying her work in the cabinet are art works which make the same leaps to break down the divisions between disciplines but still connecting to each other. She present works created through meticulous and repetitive crafts.
Eley Kishimoto "Six Geometric"
Eley Kishimoto has collaborated with tailor Timothy Everest and graphic design firm New Future Graphic to produce a range of shirts that are hand screen printed with geometric shapes.Each style features a unique new pattern.The same reversal is repeated throughout the collection. I really interested of the way that they presented of the shirt and using the same pattern as the background.
Zita Merényi has replaced sewing with soldering to create a collection of garments with "scar lines".Rather than sewing together sections of grey neoprene fabric,she used heat to fuse the edges of the plastic-based material to form clothes. I found that the technique that she work with really interesting because of the texture that pop up on the fabric and also it create pattern through those line.
Jaimee McKenna AW2013
Layers of blue fabric pleated into origami like patterns.Knitted from lambswool, the fabric were felted to create a more rigid material that could be creased into tessellating pleats in various styles. This collection inspired me in term of repetition on fabric, and the structure of draping give a sense of origami and pattern.
Melting Ice Cream Truck by The Glue Society
The project was created as part of the annual Sculpture by the Sea Exhibition in Sydney, Australia. I found this interesting for me because most of the technique that I work with in this project was quite a lot of melting with different material, plastic, candy. The purpose of making this melting ice cream came form global warming and childhood from the artist and its become this sculpture.

Sustainable Foam is based on natural materials. The main ingredient is industrial starch that is extracted from potatoes or tapioca, which grows again every year. The other ingredients are cellulose fibers and Premix. So, from where its come make this material sustainable, Its a good idea of turn something form natural into a useful material, this can use as a packaging or creating something that might interesting and also being ecological.
Frabric, Molding Cloth
3form sustainable materials and architecture + Design industry with 40%recycled content, encapsulates translucent color, organic materials, sheer textiles and embossed textures within translucent panel for architectural glass alternative. The reason why I'm interesting material because it's hold the shape quite well and easy to bend and manipulate, but it still hold the shape very well.
These garments made from interlocking foam pieces, reference construction techniques and shapes found in gothic architecture. A series of tabs and slots are lasercut from rectangular sections of soft, water- and UV-resistant foam, which link together without the use of stitches or glue. Different sized elements can be assembled to create sculptural shapes that reference the arches and domes of gothic buildings, then taken apart and rearranged.
Tim Noble & Sue Webster
Tim Noble & Sue Webster have been collecting, cleaning and storing dead animals and found objects for many years. To create their jaw-dropping sculptures, the duo arranges their finds into forms that include everything from scrap metals, personal items, empty packaging, and dead animals that were recovered on the streets, or 'gifted' to them by their grandmother's cats. Once the pieces are finished, the artists use a projector to cast light upon the sculptures, and in turn reveal shadows that range from cities to copulating rats to our most intimate acts.
She wash and store them by color. When a color imposes itself, she go to work listening to what it has to tell her, and show you what it said through descriptive scenarios of such themes as unity, animal rights, acid rain, threat of nuclear devastation, psychology, history, etc.She use acrylic boxes to display these interpretations which can also be installations. She do not paint the objects as she prefer playing with the natural hues and gradations of a colour and each one suggests a world of it's own.
Yun Woo Chio
He uses things like magazines and newspapers rolled up, along with resin and wire to hold the forms. The dimension created from something that starts out so thin is simply unreal. He creates solid waves that organically expand within the space. I think from far away they look almost like distant views of a city skyline.
Through his work in the tradition of collage he created a very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. By using antiquarian books, it makes the work simultaneously an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia. He make book sculptures, cut books by working through a book, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. In this way, he build his composition using only the images found in the book. I found this interesting because he combining the way of collages and collection together to make the work more stand out and unique.
The Inheritance project is an exploration into ideas of legacy, identity, and impermanence, of what we leave behind and how that defines us.It is a deeply personal documentation of the artist’s mourning process following the passing of her grandfather. By rearranging the objects that filled his home into pictorial compositions to assert her own presence as an artist, Tese authors a chronicle of a life as expressed by simple objects, ranging from those unique to the individual subject. Sometimes playful arrangements that allow the objects to be assessed individually as well as en masse by the audience.
His work, encircling the notion of objects and their use as part of our day-to-day experiences, has altered the traditional definition of sculpture as well as photography. By transforming and manipulating industrial and/or found objects into works of art.The sculptural arrangements play with the notion of ready-made and juxtaposition of objects that bear no relation to each other.
She collect a series of satellite prints is a collection of collections, in that each print houses a selection of things cut out from Google Satellite View.These prints are, on the one hand, collapsed pictures of her own disoriented wanderings through the endlessness of a scanned world. In accumulating, cutting out and ordering each piece of satellite imagery and layout in an order.
"The “strings” that he half-expected to find, or rather the lack thereof, would have been difficult to see from any other perspective than his, the same way it is difficult to palpate the precariousness of something unless it’s against the backdrop of nothing or juxtaposed against the possibility of its nonexistence."
This artwork made with brightly colored cut paper strung on colored thread, the pieces move in response to the slightest breath, defining three-dimensional space while remaining fluid. She employs ornate craftsmanship along with inventive materials to create objects and installations that transcend traditional boundaries between art and design. I found that this work inspired me by how the artist display her objects and in a space, and also the material that she used was very simple one but she turn into three-dimensional artwork which I found interesting.
Jim brings an artist's eye and an enthusiast's passion to his work; creating striking imagery that stives to capture the essence of his subjects."The photos depict everyday objects, but the variety and volume of items in each print force the viewer to consider the minute differences between the products and the relationships between them." The photos have a minimal style, but are really the result of his obsessive pursuit of perfectionism.
Most of his artworks are created through a process of collecting, dissecting, and then reassembling or accumulating existing objects or images and thereby liberating them from their original meanings, functions, names, roles and scales. It is a process of taking everyday life and thoughts, setting them against all that surrounds them. He has conceiving of all those things as having physical existence and actually constructing connections between them until becoming another piece of work. I found this is another way of collection but he started to build up from those object and convert into something that interesting.
Fischi and Weiss
They have been collaborating on a body of work that combines, rearranges, or otherwise manipulates their daily experiences into something new and unexpected. Executed in a variety of media, including unfired clay, polyurethane, photography, and video, their work playfully ignores the distinction between high and low art. This artwork is the idea of ready made object that arrange in a different way.
The intent of Sheila Rogers' captivating and colorful artwork, plastic pollution, particularly in our oceans. The the dimensional pieces are made from debris she has collected along our area waterfronts. Motivated by her desire to educate and motivate the public, Sheila advocates for a reduction of single-use plastics by encouraging small lifestyle changes that will lessen the amount of waste we are putting into our environment.
In this collage he incorporating organic material and objects found on a beach, such as wax, drift wood and pebbles, replacing the mass produced ephemera of previous years.''Everything had broken down and new things had to be made out of the fragments''. I found this artwork interesting for my project because he used found object to create a collection base on what he found. Its another way of presenting work throughout collage technique.
He is the pop art artist, his artwork is also inspired by his collection this really is what this show is all about because it equally presents my work and the collections, and a lot of the work. Collecting has been somewhat of an obsession for the artist since he was a child. His studio has all those rooms full of different objects: found things and bought things and whole collections, whole curiosity cabinets. It’s almost like a reference library for certain types of visual inspiration.
