from scraps to stages

From collage work i end up with a lot of material that goes unused; scraps. 
So I've started to recycle these scraps into little theatres to present and photograph objects. here are an examples of two of these first attempts: 

RoosenMocks stage for jewelry to be displayed containing in the background the legendary John Anderson rose.

Terraforming

On eggs and origins...




props arranged to help me think through the idea of origin. Visuals for journeying etc. Psychonaut theatrics


the babadooks worms.






For a while ive liked the idea of a single object containing multiple images of itself, and especially holding within its present its history (process of development).
Usually i make a 'prop' and then photo it, and from that reproduction i print its image and work into it using coloured pencil to produce an artwork, or rather a more enduring representation of the initial prop.
So that i did with this piece initially. But given i wanted it all the be present together at once, i took another step, this one right here, and i took the drawing and original prop and held them together in a resin base. A transparent base which reminds me of water, and i feel the prop is looking at its reflection below.
As above, so below.
