Life is very weird sometimes.
I had a tutorial today at college and my course leader and I talked about what I'd been up to over the last few weeks. You may remember I'd been looking at ribbons. Well I started looking at the twists and turns within those ribbons. How they roll in on themselves. My tutor and I sat and talked about it and we started making loops out of bits and pieces - initially paper but then I got my hands on some acetate. Having (finally) acknowledged that my drawing prowess is .. shall we say lacking? ... she suggested I photograph the mini structures. So this is what you see. Some of the fun I had at college. I've now been told to make whole load for next Tuesday. From there I'll look at arrangement, size, material etc. For now I just have to make them out of different material - clay, grasses, pencil shavings ... all suggestions welcome.
So why did this make me smile so much when I came to post this evening? My eye caught Sunday's post and I realised something that hadn't occurred to me before. I'm back to bloody spirals!!! Maybe it's time to admit I am obsessed.
