I have been looking at Calder for numerous reasons, firstly his use of colour is attuned to the primary colours I have been using so far in my project and will hopefully inclue in my final piece. Secondly the idea of a mobile is intersting, I was toying with the idea of possibly suspending acetate sheets.
Nakanishi creates 3d landscapes/timescapes by layering numerous layers of perspex which I printed with his various photographs. In this sense the 2d images unite and come together to form this immersive 3d environment. This is a technique I am looking to use whereby layering perspex I add an extra dimension I will hopefully do this with one of my letters and the layering should aid viewers to understand the various depths how each plane is on the front and the back at the same time.
Workign out how to apply my images to the perspex layers I came across certain problems. I decided to paint the colours onto the back of the perspex so it gets a very nice finish and appears flat, slick. However that poses the problem of the black line, it is very fine and would be difficult to paint, equally it would mean I would do the black line first and then then colour. On the other hand I could use gridding tape which I could do on the fornt of the perspex, will be slightly raised from the colour thus giving the appearance of more depth possibly.
