Following our workshop on monday i've been thinking about possible ideas for a relief sculpture refrencing the painting of Edward Wortley Montagu. I think it would be quite interesting and exciting to use a combination of pieces of scrap and really shiny metal. The scrap metal could come from anywhere around the city (skips, the resistant materials room at your school, your garden shed etc.) and because of Sheffield's industrial heritage it might also help make the work a bit more relevent to people coming to the gallery. There was also some talk of incoorperating fabrics into the work because of the rather flowing clothes that Edward is modelling; therefore if anyone fancies raiding the textile sample section in John Lewis that would be most appreciated.
P.S. message for Susie, I would be very happy to take some photos of strangers in Sheffield with you and I have an important looking camera we could use so hopefully people would take us seriously!
