IDEAS FACTORY: Brainstorms

-ISM: Darwinism

From the brainstorm we did in our group discussion, we came up with these words: evolution, development, change, theory (belief - religion & atheist)

Darwinism is a way to survive, to reproduce and compete. The newer the generation the more they learn to survive and in order to survive they need protection but until what point protection goes from being a good thing to a bad thing such as overprotecting. Every individual has their own limits.

 

MATERIAL: Rubber
It can be found on the floor, in electric wires, laptops cases, window frames, tyres, shoe sole, child car, bike seat, car bumper, condom.

From the brainstorm: erase,

IDEAS FACTORY: First Ideas

1) Since rubber is normally used to protect, why not reverse its use into something that could damage.

2) A vase protects a flowers however if we put it all around the flower we will be preventing the plant to receive oxygen which would eventually kill the plant. This shows how bad overprotectiveness can be, at times. 

3) By putting a human being inside of a rubber ball, with oxygen, and preventing the contact with the outer world and other people  (no vision, no hearing, no tasting), so in a way to protect him from the world, would it affect its evolution -- and in here Darwinism will be tested. 

4) Create a video that shows the progression of protection. From protection being a good thing to when it becomes too much that it turns into a terrible thing. However, since a persons limits is different from another, the midterm of "when it stops being good & becomes bad" is relative.

IDEAS FACTORY: Material: RUBBER

Rubber is a really malleable material to the point where its final product can either be soft or hard.

There are two different types of rubber:

IDEAS FACTORY: Erase

When thinking about erasing, I did a Q&A to some people and the answer I liked the most was from someone who associated erasing to memory so after researching, I came across Eugenia Loli's work. She's a surrealist collage artist who usually mixes vintage with modern and loves a pop of colour in her works. This particular work of hers where she collaged fishes on top of a woman's head and replaced her cigarette for a fish, in my opinion, was quite successful. The way she overlapped it gives more dynamic and brings live to this piece

So by using it as reference to produce my collage, instead of fish filled her head with erasers and portrays the memory erasing aspect and by adding pills next to the picture, I wanted to show how also pills kind of numb you emotions and some of them actually give you memory loss.

IDEAS FACTORY: Inflatable

When researching the properties of rubber, I found out that the material is flexibility and also it can be inflatable. 

Thinking back to darwinism, if we put a human in a space where he has no contact to the exterior world, would they still evolve?

The image attached showcases my thoughts in a way that by putting a human being inside a rubber ball and making them comfortable, by giving him everything he needs, he feels at "home" and safe. He doesn't really need to get out of it as he has everything he needs, so by not interacting with the outer world and other people he won't feel like he needs to change in any ways in order to adapt.

IDEAS FACTORY: The Incubator from "The Matrix"

When thinking about creating a womb outside a woman's body, the Matrix Incubator is most accurate visualisation of the idea.

TYPE PROJECT: Anish Kapoor

"Anish Kapoor is one of the most influential sculptors of his generation. Perhaps most famous for public sculptures that are both adventures in form and feats of engineering, he manoeuvres between vastly different scales, across numerous series of work. Immense PVC skins, stretched or deflated; concave or convex mirrors whose reflections attract and swallow the viewer; recesses carved in stone and pigmented so as to disappear: these voids and protrusions summon up deep-felt metaphysical polarities of presence and absence, concealment and revelation. Forms turn themselves inside out, womb-like, and materials are not painted but impregnated with colour, as if to negate the idea of an outer surface, inviting the viewer to the inner reaches of the imagination. Kapoor’s geometric forms from the early 1980s, for example, rise up from the floor and appear to be made of pure pigment, while the viscous, blood-red wax sculptures from the last ten years – kinetic and self-generating – ravage their own surfaces and explode the quiet of the gallery environment. There are resonances with mythologies of the ancient world – Indian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman – and with modern times, where 20th century events loom large."

TYPE PROJECT: Organic Shapes For Background

"Sixty-feet in length, the bench acts an interface for a large projection screen installed in the park, which reflects the movements of those who skate, run or sit on it with waves of colour.https://www.creativereview.co.uk/interactive-skate-park-fun-in-montreal/

As I'm thinking about including some sort of movement to my project I also looked into possible associations to waves as you can find shells at the beach.
