APPLIED SURREALISM

Applied Surrealism explores the possibilities of furniture when the concept of surrealism was applied. I created reactive site specific sculptures from an array of environments; to further distance this imagery from reality I used Andre Breton's Exquisite Corpse concept, collecting imagery from the sculptures as well as the outcomes of participants drawings, produced using a collection of drawing tools I designed to encourage a distraction/obstacle from the page. This collection of imagery was put into a booklet, sliced into three and pages randomly turned to produce design's for furniture I later created and burnt.
