Inspiration and Developing Final Project

Inspiration

My initial reaction to the Ring Cycle, is to work from the strong connection to nature that is present throughout the piece. I picture an abstract set that uses natural elements and forms, without being naturalistic.

Circular forms

I've been looking into circular forms, and also how they appear in nature. Also twisted perspective, and man's impact on nature.

Nature

I spent a week travelling in Iceland, and got really inspired by the nature, especially by colours and different textures.

A quarry

I have been struggling for a while where to take my design, knowing that I want to keep the trong connection to nature, and the natural resources present, but still show the effect men can have on it. I had a good converstaion about it with Michael, and he gave me the idea of designing my set as a quarry - which does in fact combine all these elements I have been looking into.

Developing the model box

I find it very useful to use Photoshop to try out some ideas before making a model.
