Found Object – Evaluation

Having created my samples I looked at medical images, pictures of spines, microscopic cells and skin and nails. I made some sketches in my sketch book.


I discovered a picture of a fertilised human egg and was really interested in the similarity with my more 3 dimensional sample. it needed to look more like a cluster of cells and I had the idea of inflating a balloon within my structure. I think it worked particularly well.

What struck me was how fragile it was, very like a newly fertilised egg. But also it can be popped with a knitting needle or other sharp implement as in an abortion.
