Finalist - 2020 AGDA Awards
BRIEF: Create a poster, cover or jacket for a movie, record or book of your choosing. Key art must be handmade.
Interstellar is a blockbuster with a soul, and I wanted to create a piece that touched upon the deep-running themes of perspective, impact and connection regardless of distance.
This handmade project took 8 hours to string, and a further 2 to hang and photograph. In total, 170m of thread, a 600 x 900mm steel lattice cut in two, some sneaky blutak and even sneakier fishing line were used to create the finished piece.
Once the piece was successfully photographed, it was deconstructed - thankfully at a greater speed than construction. The thread has been donated to my mother's sewing kit and the two pieces of mesh are currently in use as a mini-trellis for newly planted tomatoes in the back garden.
