After loving the way my experimentation with the oil and petrol looked on paper, edits and generating patterns from the images, I wanted to see what they would look like on a bigger scale- to help me picture a more garment related outcome to the patterns, to see if I could pick up any bigger shapes to help design silhouettes- and just see what the patterns looked like on a bigger scale. To do this I:
- Printed out my images onto acetate
- Laid down white sheeting to the desk
- Shut all the blinds
- Turned the projector on and laid the acetate images on top
- Photographed the results
The images I took are below:
I don’t like the result of these projections, I feel patterns loose the intricate detail when they are blown up in this manner- no matter how many times I adjusted the projector I still couldn’t get a clear image. I feel if I printed the patterns on this size the outcome would loose the meaning and looks far from water pollution and oil stains.
After this experimentation I know I will stick with the smaller scale patterns throughout the rest of my project.
