Doing production work day in and day out can get monotonous. The focus tends to be quite narrow in that you are monitoring multiple steps in a process to insure they turn out exactly as you expect them to with no variations or unexpected outcomes. But that also means you have blinders on, that you can’t allow for mistakes and follow them to a conclusion that might lead to something interesting and new.
These “shadow boxes” are one of those experiments that gives us a chance to try something different, to allow for some mistakes and follow them to see what they give us. We’re still using metal and epoxy, but exploring how you can use transparent colors to create depth and variation whereas we are normally using opaque colors that tend to be monotone and uniform. Each one is intended to be a little scene or diorama with an atmosphere, built around some abstract natural geometries that you find in the world of plants and flowers.
We’ll keep updating this post as we go along with new developments.
