Channel Earth (watercolour paint, wrapping paper, graphic pens on paper)

Inspired by… Steven Pippin's Vacuum, 1994

"Seeing this work, a monitor encased in plastic, really amazed me. The different shades of blue on the screen. Looking at it made me think of space and science fiction, which I really enjoy.

I tried different ideas, using the monitor and having images on it. Once I decided on my final design, I realised this could be science fiction. The earth and the moon on a screen encased in a machine in a different dimension.

My course is fantastic, our tutor has really brought out our confidence to draw and paint."
