Pink Mist

This piece experiments with combining organic forms with geometric shapes that I have made and then flocked with bright pink fibres.

The starting point for me was the discovery of a fallen branch which had dried and spit along its length leaving crevasses of differing sizes and depths. I wanted to play with these ‘pockets’ in the branch by flocking the inside of them and embedding my flocked shapes. This gave the impression of cuts within the surface and the geometric shapes appearing to grow from within. It references moss and other similar parasitical relationships found in the natural world between two separate forms.
