VCE final artworks / part one

  Missed Connections 

   This work pictures connections and missed connections between two strangers. The work chronicles the everyday life of two people. Throughout the work there are both visual and conceptual connections between the two sides. At the end they almost meet, but the meeting does not happen.  It can’t because they exist on different sides of a single sheet of paper folder like a concertina. The concertina book format, the medium of the work, is thus integral to the meaning of the piece:  it gave me a way of drawing each character’s story on different sides of the same sheet piece of paper, showing how those stories are both joined and separated by the medium itself.
