i build this little figures in my free time at work and to be honest it was a crazy idea as a good working mate said "hey can you build a hole band?" :D

sadly, i'm not really have the time any more and at home i don't have the opportunities

i was inspired by a lot bands, korn, slipknot, linkinpark, the prodigy, soulfly and a lot more :headbang:

if you want, take a lok at the gallery for some closer shots :)

TECHNOLOGICAL DETRITUS (1 of 3 parts)
Year 12 - HSC Body of Work
2008
Materials: Nikon D70 Camera, plastic people, plastic babies, torch, floppy disks, printer ink cartridges, speakers/parts, wires, video tape, batteries, Samsung flash camera, CD-ROM, foamcore, VCR player, Matte white Enamel spray paint, Calcite primer paint, Araldite Expoxy (2 part resin) glue, PVA glue, Super glue, Hot-melt glue.

My major body of work "Technological Detritus" is about technology and how it has changed throughout history/the past and impacted humanity. Society today, 2008 lives in a world that is rapidly advancing, surrounded by the ever present and dominance of technology. Technology/change has become a reoccuring theme for my work. This is due to its influence on our growing population and sustainability of such resources.

The work is based on my study of Australian artist Ricky Swallow. His momentums, replicas and miniature artworks have acted as a primary inspiration and influence of my whole body of work.

Assemblages 1, 2, 3 (Technological Detritus I, II, III) all have their own separate qualities and conceptual ideas within them. Time and change are essential aspects/themes to the whole artwork. Time is so important to everyone because it is everything/all.

*Detritus is latin for rubbish/junk.

- "Technological Detritus I" deals with technology in the everyday. It focuses on how we all have grown up and experienced or been impacted by the surrounding technology. It also provokes the little changes/developments that have occurred throughout the past. The use of babies and people suggest that the impact occurs to everyone not just one individual.

- "Technological Detritus II" is about technology through employment and the workforce. It focuses on global linkages, connections and communications as well as office sector and the CBD environment. The frames is rather symbolic of views/perspective. Each of the three frames represent a different scenario/aspect of life. Frame 1 features ticking clocks, proking the sense of time. The clocks work well with the assemblage as it forces the audience to be silent and contemplate. It suggests time and money justaposed with the frames. While the other frame features plastic money symbolic of society's desire for wealth and material possessions. The last frame features people looking at themselves on the other side of the frame. This could provoke the idea of identity or individuality. Again its provoking the idea of change and with the people looking at themselves act as a way of goal setting saying to themselves "that's who I want to be in 10 years time..." The tiny people figures all bundled in groups suggest the office/CBD work environment. The assemblage may also remind you of Pitt Street Shopping Mall, one of Australia's busiest shopping strips or Sydney Town Hall train station peak hour traffic - a nightmare!

- "Technological Detritus III" is more concerned with futuristic technology including aspects of robotics and rapid city/urban development. The motherboard towers/skyscrapers suggest the absorption, deterioation of the natural environment and saturation of the demanding technology. The buildings are a welcome addition to this assemblage. The inclusion of robotic characters in a line suggest uniformity in the future as well as growing control and demand of society/resources. The construction men compliments well with the technologically driven setting and ever present development/growth.

Three photographs were selected from my 'Blue Series' that acted not only as support but helps contribute to the meaning of the work and juxtaposes well with the 3 assemblages.

"Technological Detritus" I, II, III prevails a shock of recognition for objects and items that we all associate with in our everyday lives. Time is change and change...is everything.

Quote:
"A sculpture is one kind of energy stopped in its tracks to create another." - Ricky Swallow

Technological Detritus was the winner of the Waverley College PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD in 2008.

I'm actually really proud of this one. it's quite an achievement for me :D


Total time bout 1 week (spread over two cause was also painting a tyrant)

Techniques: Experimental wet blending on carapace and claws.

Upgrading my painting skill again. :D

God dammit this thing took so long to paint. If anyone was wondering why I had not posted anything decent for a while, this is the reason. :D


Now I really don't know why I am painting this one just to give it away to my friend Ivan who's going home to Indonesia. It's his model and so yes.... I have no idea why I'm giving it away after all that effort.

kinda feel sad.
So in a way, this post is my way of remembering this model as I'm unlikely to see it again T___T

Yes it has no base cause he has big plans for it.
