making models

Thinking about working with water, reflection and different materials for our silversmithing project with the theme of 'connection/s' at uni. I was imagining strange, abstract and dark shapes, like enormous deep sea fish floating over a body of water, glowing inside with clouds or other brighter images … Not too sure about the actual models, but thought that the photos worked out in an interesting way.

I've used black cardboard cuts, folded and painted inside, lit, on a mirror covered with water. Maybe these could be made of metal with printed or etched photos inside, or from polypropylene, just folded with little tabs, or maybe they will be wood with paint … or even found objects slightly modified … And how will they connect to the vessel underneath …? The fun of planning and designing : )
