Throughout the course of my FMP I had a few different subject matters to cover which all ultimately fell under the area of collecting. One part of the project which I really enjoyed exploring and experimenting with was three dimensional work, which is not something I usually do as an illustrator. This came about after visiting the Winchester Discovery Centre’s Trash to Treasure exhibit.

After my visit there I became fascinated with how people can be so resourceful with objects that most of us in the Western world take for granted. The exhibit certainly proved that what is one mans trash is anthers treasure. Something as simple as a Coke can is a precious item to creative people in third world countries. They are able to use materials like this in order to make unique toys, accessories and everyday items, to then sell in order to be able to earn some money. Therefore these people depend on the things that most of us would not look twice at.

In response to this I decided I wanted to explore working 3D, which is quite out of my comfort zone. My intentions for this were to explore a range of materials that could be classed as waste products, but to take these and transform them into something new with an entirely new function and purpose. I enjoyed this part of my project very much, and ended up creating a range of objects that I will be keeping and can use in the future.
