David Bath (L4)BA (Hons) Artist Blacksmithing
The work I am showing came from the shapes and is informed by language. I looked at the sharp dynamic forms of characters and symbols in written languages and explored the rules, concepts, and nature behind those languages. I started making my own interpretations on a different way of how written langue could work, one of the ideas I explored was for a written language that included transition and motion between the symbols and characters as the more important part of the language, the samples shown are some of the 3-d representation of what that might look like.
I came from a technical blacksmithing background so exploring the art side of this was exceedingly difficult for me, but I had a lot of fun exploring it on this project and I look forward to doing more in the future.
