Performance and Conceptual Art Workshop

  1. 1. My objects before being dipped in wax I didn’t end up using all these objects because it was going to be difficult to dip some of them in wax. For example we put a piece of thread through our objects to make it possible to dip them in the hot wax, however it wasn’t possible to do this the 5p coin. I also ended up using some other objects like the button that aren’t in this photograph.
  2. 2. Post card to myself This is the post card I wrote on. I took the idea from the word ‘preserve’ to decide to write my information on the card if someone found it in the far future.
  3. 3. Changes to the texture These are some of the other objects I dipped in wax, both their colour and texture changes in this process. On the left the jewelry ball made from plastic needed more than one coating of wax. This is because it struggled to stick to the smooth surface of the object. The only problem with adding more layers of wax is that it can loose the shape of such a delicately surfaced object such as this one.
  4. 4. Metal bottle cap One problem that I came across when I wanted to dip this object in wax was, ‘how am I going to put a piece of thread through a metal bottle cap’. I decided to try and lift the plastic sealant on the inner side of the lid because this would be soft enough to thread through. As I did this I was able to peal the harder rim of the plastic enough so that it was still firmly attached to the cap but lifted enough to thread a piece of cotton through it. I also love the dripping effect the wax has had on the inner side of the cap.
  5. 5. Dead Flower I had to dip the flower in the wax more than once because it struggled to stick to the object. However after dipping it in more than once it created a lovely icicle effect.
  6. 6. Transparent When putting thin office paper in wax it becomes transparent. This is when I decided to write something on one side and do a pattern on the other. By doing this you can look on either side of the page and see a similar sight to the other.
  7. 7. Final These are all the final objects that had been dipped in wax. I decided to change some of the sizes of the string holding the objects. This is because I didn’t want them to be all clustered together.
