So I'm working on the ideas of structure and sleep, using artists such as Picasso and Matisse for inspiration due there use of the colour blue which I myself relate to depression, poor sleep/ insomnia (so enhanced movement) and dreams which I believe effect the position of the person dreaming and the positions they pull whilst sleeping. I am going to show the unusual positions pulled by sleeping peoples, but not as if they were lying down, but as if they were stood up, as i believe (from experience) that most people are probably standing upright in their dreams. but of course the movements and positions they form are when lying down. I have further developed this idea, or the visual aspect of the idea at least, into a more abstract form, making the images less pictorial, based on the ideas of cubism and Matisse's blue period.
On the side I have a summer project of a piece of clothing that depicts differences between my own culture and another, I have a few ideas but nothing set in stone just yet.
