Evaluation of my work to Modul 1
`Stars in your eyes `- Shape and Colour -

I started in september 2010 and finished in august 2011. At the beginning, it was not so easy for me, to see, what this doing make sense in my work. But in the course of the modul-work and with the feetback from my tutor, I saw more and more what about the meaning of this work. So I tryed to cross my habits, and searched for ways to work less honest. I choose a colour sheme, I never use in my daily routine. And I mixed the colours with black and white, and became wonderful colours, I never thought. The work with the paper was not my favorite, but the work with the fabric was a nice doing. Chapter 7 and 8 I liked very well. The different ways to arrange the shapes and the surprise to see the results, showed me new ways to develop a new design. Chapter 11 was interisting to do, because it was a complex work with a visible process, and a resolved sample. This was the reason, I began to work in a sketchbook DIN A 3. So I have all my reseachs together.
If I had to do this work again, I`d like to work more free, make more inventive experiments. I think there are 1000 and more ways to do this work, so every new start will bring other results.
And sometimes more photos about the evolution of the work so you can see more about the way of working.

I spend a long time to translate the modul-input, and to write in english to my blog and my tutor. To built the blog at the beginning was a difficult work for me, because I am not close with this kind of computerwork. And I am proud, that I made this alone with a result to be in working order.
The real working time for dying paper and fabric perhaps 20 hours. To make the design of all chapter, circa 110 hours. To make photos and post it on the blog, all together 35 hours. I don`t look for the time I notice interisting website or blogs, to write down the adress of shops you can by material and create a book about my visits at museums ....and something like that.

Paul Klee was born 18.12.1879 in Switzerland. 1898 he began study art in munich in Germany. He made journeys for example to Italy and France. After he came back he met the artists Kandinsky, Marc and Macke. He added the artist group " Blue Rider " and was affected from the Cubism art.He loved music, and many of his image-titles are in connection with the music. He played with form and colour, and he wanted " bring light in the darkness of the world...". In the time where Klee`s aesthetic age up, the light always stand in the mittle of his work. Sometimes his images are reserved and other time they are very colourful, often he used one basic colour and painted in different tone. He used geographical sign like star, crosse, triangle, rectangle, quadrat, line, circle and often the arrow.

In each corner are different ways to show the shape, and they desintegrate more and more at the way to the center.

below: different ways to compose desintegating shapes
after I glued the left little shapes you cant`t see the different ways of desintegration ( piercing ), so i used a black pen to show it better - I thought it wasn`t a good idea.

It was a nice work wtih the " loosely " fabric.

From the top to the bottem:
Laced insertion stitch, simple insertion stitch, plaited insertion stitch, bottenhole insertion stitch,
beaded insertion stitch, bottenhole bar, machine stitching


It was interisting to do this work. I used different felt pieces, at some time i bonded coloured "Bonda-web, or made handstitcheing before I cut them in pieces.
I had a lot of fun with the differnt insertion stitches, and was surprised about the effect that I had have with the last piece- positive and negative shapes swapped.
