A Lovely Explosion

Matilda's new installation in work progress - A Lovely Explosion

[ Illustration Publication - EXPLOSION - Creative Brief]
The aim of this project is to explore new uses of illustration and free ideas from only using pencil on paper, take works to the real world, anything you can image that pushes the boundaries of the contemporary illustration story.

[ Explosion - A Lovely Explosion]
Media used: bubble wrap, ink, and paste
Name: A Lovely Explosion
Size: A0 (841 × 1189 mm)

In terms of reflecting to the main idea of this project to explore the boundary and idea of illustration, I tried to express ‘A Lovely Explosion’ via materials. The function of bubble wrap is protection by explosion of air bubbles, but the word ‘Explosion’ is a violent and destructive shattering or blowing apart of something. To show the contradiction of dangerous and protective, sweet –coloured inks were injected in to each bubble and constructed a hand grenade shape by water pixels; different colours also dissolve each other from time to time that present a slow and lovely explosion.
