Week 7: Practising Exhibition Display

I originally intended to display completed prints of either the matchstick stairs or other stairs that I have taken around the country. This, however, was difficult due to time constraints. I instead wanted to play around with the two- to three-dimensionality of the sculptures and the photographs. I decided to hang the stairs from the ceiling to give the notion of floating, with the stairs themselves at different angles. I did not know what the effect of this would be, nor whether it would work until it came to setting up the exhibition.

Unintentionally, the lights were different colours and the stairs were blurry up against the wall, however I enjoyed the effect that it made. I also felt like the effect of the shadow on the wall was as though I had created a negative, further linking the photography and sculpture that I started with.
