I knew that I wanted to introduce something with height, but felt that the material used in this case (rubble bags) was not right.
A number of works have gone through a shift of materials, for instance the seaweed in the skimmer was replaced with the same shape made from rice paper. Also, the shredded cardboard on the aluminium rod was changed to the lotus leaves.
I considered drawing more attention to features in the space such as the taps and plug sockets. I decided to keep a more minimal aesthetic and focus the attention on the work as opposed to the space per se.
I tested various methods to display the same items. For instance, the screen prints were once pegged onto a large board with brightly coloured pegs, and propped against the wall.
I gradually decreased the number of works in the space, and therefore left out some works that I had originally intended being in the exhibition. I am pleased to have included less because it gives each of the works its own space in which it can be appreciated with few distractions.
In addition to the carpet underlay, I tried using different materials to put on the floor on which different works. In the end I just kept the carpet underlay as the other things were adding nothing more. ,
