Though maybe I should have called this piece “Living in a Fishbowl…”
This home is a tribute to those who have lost homes due to flooding. It uses two of my favorite techniques, printing digital imagery on tissue paper (not as hard as you might think!) and ice resin paper which creates the coolest translucent effect! An inner support was built out of a transparency sheet cut and hinged to shape. A child’s toy fish is on the roof for a finishing touch.
Confession: OK, it’s my daughter’s fish toy. What’s the craziest thing you’ve swiped for an art project? Leave a comment and let me know!
UPDATE: This piece was published in the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors! 🙂
