Helena Hamilton: Week 5/6/7

0

    Week 5/6/7

     

    I will be installing my work Monday and Tuesday next week.  Throughout my time here I have begun researching and creating a new body of work - following the materials that I chose to use - paper and sound.  I have found the minimalist Japanese design, fashion and iconography very inspiring.

     

    The work that I will show at Ongoing is the beginnings of this new body of work, running themes of repetition, simplicity, order and effect.  One of my main experiences here has been the juxtaposition of a uniquely defined and extremely successful structure within the masses of people, happenings and places - I have never before experienced order like here in Tokyo, where no matter how busy, loud or intense a given space is there is never disorder, and this order is followed in a very diligent and polite manner.  Without consciously meaning to, this has become evident in the work that I am producing through different strategic decisions made throughout the process of experimenting and creating.  It is often the way within my practice that only when I take time to write and reflect on how and what I am creating that I begin to see these links in the chain of experience and creation.

     

    This work will continue to develop when I return home.
