Synthesis: 2


Using same technique as before (see Part 1), I’ve taken another of the coiled rubber samples and this time added some beautiful copper stakes which I found discovered by peeling some of the sturdier electrical wire I’d already acquired by dissecting cable. This process of deconstructing material to reveal other useful material, mirrors very much what I’ve been doing with natural material such as bramble (to be documented in future blogs).



I’ve decided to use the blue cable throughout because of the sheer brilliance of its contrasting colour (attracting much canine interest) and for continuity between the pieces. The process of dissecting cable and extracting electrical cable is both tedious but ultimately worthwhile for the array of coloured wire that I find within.
