The second final piece was inspired by Maxwell Rushton’s piece, Left Out. He created a sculpture to see publics reactions, if people would try to help the sculpture or just walk past like people do to the homeless.
I decided I was going to make a sculpture based on a homeless person using cardboard. The cardboard is reference to the homeless using cardboard to sit/ lie on. The ‘person’ is made from plastic bags which are filled with newspaper. I draped cardboard on top to blend the sculpture into the cardboard the sculpture is lying on. This is implying that the homeless person is part of the cardboard, like they are invisible. The studio floors are a light brown colour so I’m hoping the cardboard blends into the floor even more.
