"Final" Results (For now :) )

I asked for some extra feedback from Seecum to help me proceed within this project, because I felt very stuck after the first experiments. She told me this:


Hi Sabine, i think sometimes staying close to what the scars are for us is important. So thinking of where they come from or when, and what they mean to you without havig to repair them immediately. Apart of what this mending course is meant to provide, is a way or roadmap to understand what you are mending in the first place.

So before ‘mending’ stay with what needs to be mended, walk back a few steps. Think about materials that have a relationship to the injury.

So I took some time to think about the cause. I received my scars from a serious accident. I was injured badly and they've put various metal plates in my body to help my body and bones heal/recover. But at the same time, metal (a car) was the cause. So my "relationship" with metal was very conflicted and using this as a material was a nice way to mend my relationship with my body and the scars as well.

This would be the first time for me working with metal, so at the same time that was very scary and exciting as well. 

At first I made some paper try-outs so that I had a plan for in the metal station:

After making a selection I went through the metal and publication station to work on the collages:

I learned a lot of new techniques and working methods
